The role of the HR business partner is more important than ever, now that there are more demands on HR to add value. And more leaders are realizing that by making better use of their employees, they can better achieve the profitability goals of the business.
In addition, more of the transactional HR work is being outsourced, so HR is not only able to focus more on the strategic side of the business, but is also being asked to make a strategic contribution and develop people strategies that clearly add value to bottom-line results. This is the role of the human resources business partner.
A strategic HR business partner works closely with other business leaders influencing strategy, steering its implementation, and making the best use of the organization's people. The HR business partnerrole is more of a consultative role. Human resource business partners have clients within the organization to whom they provide services and build relationships focused on the vision and objectives of the organization with much less focus on compliance and administration.
