Collaborating skilfully with other business departments to fulfil HR’s potential as a function

More often than not, different divisions of a business are siloed on a day-to-day basis. While the HR Business Partnering model encourages collaboration between HR and other departments, there can still be an evident lack of synergy. Strong communication and coefficient working across teams can contribute major business benefits such as agility and effective decision-making, as well as promoting HR as a core, strategic function. This session will offer insight on:

  • why it is important to collaborate from both a business and an HR perspective
  • understanding other departments’ drivers and objectives to align your work
  • supporting leaders and acting as interface between departments and stakeholders
