Human Resources Business Partners Our HR Business Partners (HRBP) have moved to be closer to their customers and begun to establish their partnership with their new departments. In coordination with Stephanie Schroeder, Director of Business HR, HRBPs are completing onboarding meetings in January and February. The meetings are focused on partnering with departments to determine priorities, challenges, and structure. When meetings are complete, leadership will develop first year work plans. The plans will include departmental priorities and the HRBPs will work in collaboration with leadership to ensure alignment with goals and metrics. In addition to the onboarding meetings and first year work plans, the HRBPs have been working on forming as a high impact team, continuing to attend HR targeted training, and working closely with HRSC team members. We want to hear feedback on our high impact model, as we continue to enhance the services we provide to our customers.
