HR Business Partnership – Working with your Leaders to Build Deeply Engaged Teams NEW
Why You Should Attend This Course
As HR business partners, leaders look to you for possible solutions to address employee engagement issues within their business units or to drive their team’s performance to greater heights.
Recent studies are clear that for teams to perform at their best, leaders need to invest time and energy in building deeply engaged teams. Such teams can accomplish much more than the sum of its parts and this has a positive impact on productivity, business outcomes and profitability.
To achieve this, HR business partners need to take a programmatic approach when working with business to create a culture that promotes meaningful connections as well as the desired mindset and behaviours for individual and team success. This also requires HR business partners and leaders to focus not only on the brain (tools, processes, etc) but also the heart of the business (their people).
