Session 3 - HR Business Partners – Lessons from Working Remotely
April 15, 2021 | 3:00-4:30 PM EST WAIT LIST STARTED

Companies faced many challenges in 2020 including COVID-19, natural disasters, and the effects of deep societal divides.  This has had a huge impact on organizations’ business results, business models and employees in some extreme and different ways.  Human Resources has been at the center of much of this and has made adjustments to operate in this new environment.  This CAHRS Series of working groups will focus on what we are learning from this and how it will impact the HR Operating Model as we move into the future.  Attendees to these sessions vary based on the focus of the working group but would include HR Shared Service leaders, HR COE leaders and HR Business Partners.

In this third working group in the series, CAHRS Executive Director Beth Flynn-Ferry will explore how CAHRS companies are incorporating what they learned as many HRBPs performed their roles remotely.  Some of the questions we may address include:

•    What are the new challenges HRBPs are facing in supporting the business? How did they overcome these?
•    How has the role changed when working remotely? 
•    Are there different or enhanced capabilities needed to excel as an HRBP during these times?
•    How are you planning to change your HRBP model going forward?

About our CAHRS Series of Working Groups
The CAHRS Series of working groups are designed to examine a particular theme or topic from a number of different perspectives. The other sessions included in the “Rethinking the HR Operating Model” working group series are listed below and can be found in the events section of the CAHRS website.  Individuals are encouraged to sign up for as many of the sessions in the series as match their interests and availability.

•    HR Operations and Shared Services – What’s New | February 18, 2021,
•    Adjusting COEs post COVID | March 17, 2021,
•    Aligning HR Capabilities with Changes to the HR Operating Model | May 13, 2021

Our virtual working groups are kept small (15-20 participants) to allow for rich discussion and best practice sharing.  Given the limited size of each session, we ask that you only register for a session if you will be able to attend for the duration.  Prior to the session, attendees should give some thought to the questions included in the description, so they are prepared to share with the group.  We also strongly prefer that participants be on camera during the session to allow for more engaging interaction.  If for some reason after you sign up for the working group, something comes up last minute (especially while many of us are working from home), it would be great to get even a last minute e-mail advising us that you cannot attend as we sometimes have a waiting list.
