Join Michael McLernon for an in-depth discussion in this video Establishing credibility and trust, part of HR as a Business Partner.
- Establishing credibility and trust with your client group…is critical to the success of an HR business partner.…Assuming your HR organization has the basics…of administration down pat, you'll be off…to a great start to build a meaningful partnership…with the business.…But before you can build that relationship,…be sure that core processes are completely effective,…like hiring and onboarding, paying employees accurately…and on time, and enrolling them in health…and retirement benefits.…All of these things must be in place…before taking on strategic talent initiatives…like organization design or career coaching.…
I've seen HR professionals attempt…a partnership role before gaining…an understanding of the business they support.…Don't make that same mistake.…I strongly believe every support function…should be accountable for understanding…the mechanics of the business they're working for.…HR is no exception to that.…If you don't understand the inner workings of a business,…how can you make a difference for the people within it?…
