HR Business Partner

The HR business partner works directly with business units within an organization. It marks a shift from the traditional way of running HR to a newer, more integrated role within each function of the business. They are typically involved with individual units within an organization, rather than just overall administrative duties. They work with department managers on developing a plan to hire the right people with the skills needed specifically for a job opening in that area. By working closely with department managers on a hiring strategy, an HR business partner has a better idea of the context surrounding each job opening. Rather than listing a generic job opening for an accountant, they understand the specific job duties as well as the goals a manager has for that position. Their work is directly related to current and future business success. They are concerned less with administration and compliance issues and more on how a strategic plan for employee recruitment and retention can improve the effectiveness of a business unit. In short, rather than being an administrative support position on employee issues, the HR business partner is an operational and strategic resource position.

With the shift to a business partner role, HR professionals are more active in working with that department manager on an overall strategy for hiring personnel. They know, in detail, what the manager hopes to achieve with the employee in that position and how it serves overall department goals.
