HR Lunch Bunch: Strategic Partnering – What Does it Mean to Know the Business?

July 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between an HR generalist and an HR Business Partner? Have you ever seen job posts for HR Business Partner, only to find that the job duties listed were identical to an HR generalist or HR manager?

This month’s discussion will be focused on strategic partnering. We’ll tackle questions like:

  • What does it mean to “know the business”?
  • How do you approach the work with a strategic mindset (vs a tactical mindset)?
  • How do you focus on strategy when there are so many other things to do?
  • How do you build the right relationships and establish trust and credibility?
  • What metrics can you use to connect people data with business outcomes (i.e., “data informed decisions”)?
  • What skills and competencies do you need to operate as an HRBP?

This session will be facilitated by Kyra L. Matkovich, SHRM-CP, PHR.  Kyra is the Principal HR Business Partner at Exact Sciences.

Whether you’re a seasoned HRBP or exploring, the conversation is yours! Come ready to engage and share your experiences, as well as tips for those who are exploring an HRBP role.

Come prepared to participate and bring along your questions.  This is a great time and place to share your “tools and learnings” with other attendees.
