About the Course

Human Resources, as an administrative role, can have limited influence on a company's future. On the other hand, a company that would like to differentiate itself from the competition can use HR as a Strategic Partner since it can impact the company's key objectives. The role of HR as a Strategic Partner is to develop and direct an HR plan that supports and drives the business's overarching goals. In other words, a strategic HR partner bridges the gap between the work of the HR team on the ground and the mission of the C-suite. When HR collaborates with the C-Suite, the needs of the business guide the actions of human resources: the actions of human resources help the business achieve its goals. In top-performing HR departments, this synergy drives every task and initiative.

Today's best HR professionals aren't the compliance officers of old: they're partners in strategic planning, driving businesses to success. THEREFORE, an HR strategic partner collaborates with the HR department while consulting on talent issues and initiatives. The expertise they bring to the table enables them to drive innovation that positively impacts the entire organisation.

The conclusion, consequently, is that the strategic HR leader should be both a professional in the field of HR and a competent businessperson.
