HR BUSINESS PARTNER – STRATEGIC SUPPORT AND COACHING AS EQUALS

HR BUSINESS PARTNER AS INTERFACE BETWEEN THE HUMAN RESOURCES DEPARTMENT AND MANAGEMENT

Your company has a well-rehearsed HR department and a strong management level, but the exchange between the two parties is not working as desired? The HR department provides good impulses, which are, however, not sufficiently implemented by the executives? The management sees a need for action on the part of HR, but does not manage to address this adequately? In all these situations an HR Business Partner serves as an interface. Our HR Experts are experienced HR Business Partners and will quickly improve your situation.

The world of work is in a constant process of change

In order to retain a motivated workforce with the right know-how despite a shortage of skilled workers and a greater willingness to change jobs, companies have to keep pace. In addition to a good work-life-balance, development opportunities and appreciation, employees demand that their employers live up to the principles of corporate social responsibility. On the other hand, companies must operate profitably. To do this, it is also necessary to make decisions that meet with little understanding among employees.

The role of our HR Experts as HR Business Partner is to analyze and strategically think through the respective situations and to mediate between HR, employees, managers and the management. As a sparring partner at eye level, as a consultant and coach, and as a trusted point of contact for all kinds of issues.

HR generalists who drive the business

HR Business Partners are defined as the interface between the HR department and the core business. The focus is not on administrative or operational activities, but on strategy development and implementation as well as consulting and coaching of executives. Human Resource Business Partners are involved in all important management decisions and therefore have a direct influence on business development.

Designing instead of managing

The responsibilities of an HR Business Partner are diverse and depend on the size and structure of the company. In large companies, there are often several Business Partners, for example, each HR Business Partner is responsible for a separate business area. In smaller companies, there is often only one HR Business Partner. The activities of HR Business Partners tend to be more general in smaller companies, while in larger companies the focus is very much on strategy and business support. In any case, they are a strategic sparring partner and coach for management, lead change processes, take care of HR demand and succession planning, and are responsible for employee retention.

Assertive
and trustworthy

In order to fill the role of an HR Business Partner, a number of requirements should be met. Basically, suitable candidates should already have several years of experience in HR. She:He should enjoy proactively driving developments forward and act responsibly and decisively. In this context, assertiveness and negotiation skills are important qualities. In order to create a relationship of trust with both employees and management, strong social skills, a solution-oriented approach and strong communication skills are also fundamental requirements.
