HR Business Partners (HRBPs) are the focal point for advising managers across the business on key people questions. They:
- Help implementing business strategy by building organizational capability.
- Enable business unit leaders to maximize their talents and strengths, accelerating their own performance and development as well as that of the people they lead.
- Contribute to and drive implementation of our Group People Strategy.
HRBPs work locally with senior managers and line managers on long-term planning for local HR matters to ensure our People Strategy is consistent globally.
As they progress, overall business acumen and coaching skills are enhanced. They also learn to challenge established procedures and, working with relevant specialists, find ways to optimize how we work.
At the most senior level, HRBPs lead large-scale, global change and development initiatives. Thanks to their comprehensive knowledge of many functional domains, they also learn how to shape the organization's complex internal business environment, creating practical solutions that add commercial value.
