The HR Business Partner role is ripe for change. In the past, HR transformation has largely focused on leveraging technology to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of HR offerings. Now, as organizations and their HR functions have entered a period of “new normal”, HR Business Partners can not merely support business goals, instead they must take a leadership position to enable, drive, and be the catalyst for driving strategic initiatives of the business. As evidence of this massive change, forward-looking HR functions have created a number of new HR job roles including Global Head of Employee Experience, AI For HR Data Scientist, and Future of Work Leader, all profiled in the HBR article authored by Jeanne Meister and Robert Brown, 21 HR Jobs of the Future. By contrast, the role of the HR Business Partner has largely focused on providing “one size fits all solutions”, and current training has often focused on developing general business, financial, and HR process administration skills. With massive change escalating the importance and the role of HR Business Partner, incumbents and the next generation of HR Business Partners must acquire a new set of skills and capabilities. Join Michael Martin and Jenny Wich to learn about the future of the HRBP.
