HRBP Development Cohort & Assessment

HR Business Partners are among the most pivotal HR professionals in your organization.
Are you confident they have the right skills for the future?

Sign up for final HRBP Development Cohort of 2021, starting August.

Developing HRBPs is a priority for many organizations.

The HRBP is a challenging and visible role that is key to aligning HR to business initiatives and achieving effective HR service delivery.

HRBPs must successfully build coaching, trusted advisory, and partnering relationships with business leaders and HR peers across the organization. They perform strategic work that demands business acumen as well as a broad understanding of core HR.

The HR knowledge required today often delves deeper into more advanced areas such as talent planning, talent risk management, and people analytics. Are your HRBPs equipped with the necessary skills for today— and the future?
