Certified Human Resources Professional

From Traditional HR Role to Business Partner



Why Attend


HR professionals have to stop 'doing' and start 'delivering'. Therefore, HR has to transform itself into a credible business partner deserving a seat at the decision making table. The door is wide open for human resources to become the business partner it always wanted to be rather than remaining just another service function.


Now more than ever, HR professionals need new skills and a whole new set of competencies: technical, behavioral and emotional, in order to be able to deliver strategic and tangible results. Participants to this course will go through the various HR functions, the key results that HR has to deliver, the key performance indicators for measuring HR performance, and the various competencies necessary for the success of HR as a business partner.


In the end, this course will enable you to transform yourself and your HR department into a business partner capable of delivering results and adding value to your organization.


Course Methodology


This course is based on the latest research and best practices related to human resources management. It brings new experiences and examples to participants, as well as insights and understanding of what makes a successful HR business partner.
