HR Business Partner Excellence: 9 Roles for Effectiveness
The business partnership toolkit for the HR professional
At this Next Concept HR Association event, Linda Gunther, an independent HR and organizational development/training consultant and a UCSC Silicon Valley Extension Human Resource Management instructor, will take us on a deep dive into the high seas facing the HR business partner.
Often, HRBPs have well-developed content skills, mainly focused on HR functional skill areas, but they may not have developed the critical qualitative competencies and behaviors that can help them be most effective and successful in the eyes of their clients. Having a toolkit rich in best-in-class competencies and practices can be golden for the HR professional.
Linda will discuss the HR Business Partner Excellence model that is built on the three foundational areas—develops ideas, advises and influences, promotes and champions—and she will describe nine specific roles for effectiveness.

About the Presenter
Linda S. Gunther, an independent HR and organizational development/training consultant and instructor in the UCSC Extension Human Resource Management certificate program, has held a variety of HR leadership positions in Silicon Valley companies.
She has spent over five years developing this HR Business Partnership excellence model, having interviewed HR leaders in a variety of company settings as well as an array of client executives and managers who work with HR business partners on a regular basis. She asked interviewees the following two questions:
- What do you look for when hiring an HRBP?
- What specific attributes, competencies and skillsets are you hoping to find in the HRBP candidates who will potentially work well with your teams, your business leaders and with the company as a whole?
