Hi All, Hope you all are doing good.
Could anyone please share some books/notes/pdf etc. related to Human Resource Business Partner?
I'm looking for a switch and would like to apply for this position, however, I'm not very well aware of it. I'd like to know and learn about the concept of HR Business Partner and roles and responsibilities associated with it. I need your help.
Thank you.

Hi Partner,

The term, "HR Business Partner" means HR working closely with the business for the advancement of the business.

So, it's not books that you should be looking at. You should be learning the non-HR business process and check where in the process there is value addition from the HR.

As an example, let's say that a company provides an educational assistance benefit where 75% of the year's educational costs for employees' children of above 4 years of age, are reimbursed. The project manager approaches the HR stating that they plan on increasing the salary of one their resources, but as this has to be taken from the project, they would like to know what is the cost impact of this benefit.

The HR checks the records and confirms that this employee is currently unmarried and so, if he gets married this year, it would be at least another year before he has a child. So, in total for up to 5 years fro now, this benefit would not have a direct cost impact on increasing the salary and adjusting it from the project.

This is just a small example.
