When an experienced HR professional who has spent years in managing and upgrading different workplaces becomes a confidant of the management and may or may not hold a position among the company’s board of directors is said to be HR business partner.
He guides the senior management in developing and directing on HR affairs and becomes a spokesperson on behalf of the management. He does not indulge in implementing HR policies, compliance and administrative functions; rather invest time in making policies and future planning of HR related needs.
He becomes a consultant within the organization for the management and acts as a spokesperson for the HR department and employees. He should be a gifted communicator, expert on human resource, business acumen and positive approach towards solving challenges.
