HR Business Partnering is a widely accepted approach in today’s organisations. HR Business Partners must focus intently on the organisational goals of delivering value, driving change, and stakeholder satisfaction.


At Roffey Park we believe you can achieve all this and more, without quitting the values that make you a talented HR professional. You’re going to need a resilient mind and a compassionate heart to make this business partnering role a success and we’re here to help.


Course Overview


The HR Business Partner Skills course will give you a comprehensive range of practical tools and skills so you provide challenge and support to business leaders within your organisation. We focus on your own human relationships with other business leaders to provide you with your own, unique HR Business Partnering formula.
