Seven Success Factors that Talent Developers Could Learn from HRBPs
A summary of a 2020 Qualitative Research Study on HRBP Development
Too many talent development (TD) professionals complain about:
Having to take orders from the business (commonly known as order-takers)
Not being recognized or taken seriously for your TD expertise
Working with the business can be challenging. Too often, sponsors dictate training that won’t improve performance. Subject-matter experts (SMEs) insist on content that won’t be meaningful or crucial to learners. At times, even TD management wants you to skip analysis (sometimes design) and get started developing what the business wants.
This does not need to be your reality! How? Human Resource Business Partners (HRBPs) can show us the path! By changing how you work, you can elevate yourself from an order-taker to becoming a trusted advisor.
In this webinar, Gary DePaul will share the HRBP success factors that describe how HRBPs strengthen their partnerships and contribute more effectively towards favorable business results.
Months before the 2022 HRBP Report is released, Dr. DePaul will share insights from the report to help you get and keep a seat at the table.
- Implement seven HRBP success factors to your own professional development.
- Avoid common mistakes that limit your professional growth.
- Improve the quality of your HR internship programs.
- Identify the challenges managers deal with when trying to improve how their HR teams interact with business partners.
