According to the CIPD, the Business Partner model is the most commonly adopted HR service delivery model, with almost 50% of organisations employing business partners in their ranks.
But operating as an HR business partner requires a vastly different array of skills compared to more transactional forms of HR service delivery.
It requires a much deeper and broader understanding of your organisation, the ability to work alongside all levels of management, greater self-awareness and impact, expertise in creating and leading change and the maintenance of a business focus. Not an easy set of skills to develop!
One of our most popular HR events, this expert seminar will help you build this skill set and benchmark your current experience against best practice and other organisation`s activities.

Receive a 20% discount when you book more than one event, or book more than one person on the same event. Please note this discount only applies to the lesser priced booking and when all bookings are placed together.
You are entitled to a 25% discount on your booking if you are a registered charity. This discount will show on your invoice once your booking is submitted. You will need your charity registration number for the booking form.
You can purchase and access a full recording of selected international employment law events. This is an option for those who cannot attend an event on a particular day or those who wish to share knowledge with colleagues. Full slides and documentation are provided and the recording is accessible in easily digestible bite-sized chunks. Get in touch to learn more.
Technology is bringing about seismic shifts in how we communicate on both a personal and business level. This is particularly evident in how learning is consumed and JSB is committed to delivering its L&D services in a way that optimises all appropriate technology.
In each case participants receive a documentation pack which includes any presentation material alongside a supporting narrative giving useful background information.
Choose the right approach for you:
The most valuable form of learning delivery continues to be the face-to-face classroom-based event. Engaging with expert speakers and fellow participants in relaxed two-way discussion in a distraction-free environment offers a valuable and practical learning experience.
All JSB programmes take place in top venues in central London and participants report that they greatly value the opportunities that these events provide for learning and networking.
We frequently welcome participants from overseas to our London events. However, we recognise that HR professionals who are responsible for managing workforces in these countries will not always be able to make the financial and time investment necessary to attend JSB events when they run in London. You will have the opportunity to submit questions to the speaker throughout the event and will get access to the slides and documentation in exactly the same way as those in the room. All you need is a standard domestic broadband connection.
Should you find that you can’t wait until the next event on your chosen topic, you can access a full recording of a recent live event. Again, full slides and documentation will be provided. This is an option for those who cannot attend an event on a particular day. Moreover if the learning is to be of practical value it is often the case that even those who participated on the day welcome the opportunity of accessing the material in the weeks and months following the event. It’s a great way to share content with colleagues too.
Go to our booking form and when you select the event you wish to book on, simply choose the option that best suits you. If you are interested in the on demand access, please get in touch to find out more.
Any course can be delivered on an in-house basis.
