Strategic Human Resource & Business Partner (Master Class)


Managing Human Resources is as old as mankind itself. From the days of Personnel Management to what HR has become today, the business has called for HR to be more engaging, more interfacing and less administrative, in order to create more value for the organisation and its business.

Human Resource partnership is ever more important today than it was ever in the past, yet the real meaning of what it is and how it is carried out is not known to many.

In this three-day professional training, we bring to you the true art and science of HR business partnerships and give you opportunities to develop the practices of the actual implementation of the processes involved and what it takes for every organisation’s Human Resource to understand and work with the Business and bring to them true value the walk the extra miles….
