HR Business

Partnering Conference

27-28 March 2019 | London

Thank you for attending the HR Business Partnering Conference on 27-28 March 2019.

The HR Business Partner model has been adopted in varying ways across sectors and different organisations. That being said, there are some core principles which are applicable to all approaches that help determine a successful partnership. For example, the HR function needs to be closely aligned with the organisation’s structure, leaders and line managers in order for HR Business Partners to add value and help achieve objectives, drive change and promote stakeholder satisfaction.

The CIPD HR Business Partnering Conference 2019 will explore the evolving responsibilities and expectations of today’s HR Business Partners and how to develop a compatible and tailored skillset to deliver in all areas of the role. It will also examine the evolution of the traditional model and endeavour to forecast what is next in the HRBP lineage so current and aspiring HR Business Partners can equip themselves with the tools essential to succeed and become a high-performing HR Business Partner.
