Strategically and tactically the HR Function has to operate in the commercial space, ensuring it directly contributes to the bottom line and is driven by business imperatives. People issues have never been more in the limelight, so talent management and business partnering have become common terms throughout every sector.

Business Partnering is not a new concept and we see many functions still going through the evolution of the model. Some are embarking on it for the first time. Either way, the HR professionals in the team need to be equipped and prepared for a new way of working.

Paul has recruited the top Business Partner talent for some of the best, most dynamic and innovative HR Functions in the world, such as Coca-Cola, Citigroup, Muller, RBS, Ford, Tesco and a host of others and fully understands the skill and behavioural competencies that are expected at that level. Between The Career Gym team we have all exprienced how to put the theory into practice.

Teaming up with our HR Associates we are able to offer a range of bespoke development solutions for your HR team; whether 1-1 coaching, a 2 hour group refresher course or a more detailed workshop at entry, advanced and mastery levels.

If you have people moving from HR Management to Business Partner, need to up-skill an existing population or need to re-energise a team in the right direction, we would love to have a conversation to understand your needs.
