i4cp 2018 Conference

Pre-Conference Workshop:
Enabling Agility with HR Business Partners

Monday, March 26, 2018, 9am to 5pm

An agile organization requires an agile HR function, one that can anticipate the needs of the business and empower leaders at all levels to strategically plan for future workforce and skill gaps.

The key to making HR more agile is to delegate more decision making to the HR business partner role. And the key to being an effective HRBP is the ability to analyze talent risk across the talent supply chain.

In this full-day workshop for both leaders and HRBPs, you’ll gain greater understanding of how to take your HR team to the next level—by understanding the critical traits needed in an effective HRBP, what is needed to better manage and mitigate talent risk, and how the combination leads to more agility.

The critical role of the HR business partner
The role of HRBPs is transitioning from tactical day-to-day activities to a strategic player at the corporate table. You will learn:

  • The historical view of the role and how this limits the impact of the position
  • The skills critical for HRBPs become more strategic, and how HR leadership can help
  • Seven core capabilities for successful strategic business partners who can operate in today’s complex work environments

Talent risk management
Many companies are facing a huge shortage of highly skilled talent with the requisite capabilities to have an immediate impact—and in turn, retaining such highly valued talent has never been more challenging. This talent risk crisis affects the ability to execute, generate revenue, and maintain quality output.

It’s essential for HR and especially HRBPs to be armed with a structured process to assess, prioritize, mitigate, measure, and monitor talent risk so that your organization can adapt quickly to new opportunities, market challenges, and strategic imperatives. In this workshop, you will be armed with tools and techniques to:

  1. Better understand the business strategy—and HR’s role
  2. Map talent gaps and future needs
  3. Develop workforce action plans, from acquisition to development and retention
  4. More accurately measure and monitor talent risk

Organizational agility
By structuring more strategic HR business partner roles that can plan and prepare for future workforce needs, your organization—and HR—will be better prepared to take advantage of new market opportunities.

The workshop will be presented by Jay Jamrog, i4cp co-founder and futurist. Lunch is included.
