The Evolution of the HRBP and OD Roles
Leaders: Dave Millner and Alec Levenson
Tuesday April 27
8am PT / 11am ET / 3pm GMT
The HRBP has become the focal point for how HR is structured to deliver value and service to the business. According to SHRM, the role encompasses key elements such as HR policy guidance and interpretation, expertise on the legal requirements for day-to-day management of employees, managing and resolving complex employee relations challenges, guidance on training needs and coaching, business unit restructures, workforce planning and succession planning, working closely with management and employees to improve work relationships, and increase productivity and retention and analyzing trends and metrics in partnership with HR colleagues to develop solutions, programs and policies. And more …
In this session we will address the current and future state of the HR business partner role, the enablers and barriers of success, and how it relates to organization development (OD). If HR is to focus on ‘value add’ business contributions:
- What are the real business priorities?
- What needs to change to ensure that HR ‘adds business value’?
- Why are we still having these conversations some 30 years on after the HRBP role was developed?
