The HR Business Partners provide strategic HR guidance for assigned client groups to ensure effective planning and implementation of key initiatives that affect the workforce. They provide counsel to ensure consistent application and integration of policies, procedures and practices and develop best practices to align with each area’s unique needs. Our HR Business Partner teams report to our Associate Vice Presidents.

HR Business Partners are embedded within their customer units to provide HR support and guidance within the context of that particular business unit. They accomplish this by being knowledgeable of the various HR disciplines as well as understanding the experiences, expectations and needs of their customer units.

Some of the ways HR Business Partners support campus and UK HealthCare areas include:

  • Provide HR expertise in the management of projects.
  • Proactively identify and communicate support required to remove barriers and identify creative solutions.
  • Facilitate communication between leaders and Human Resources to promote alignment and understanding of objectives and goals.
  • Provide senior leaders with timely and relevant information to support strategic decision making.
