One of the most difficult things to get right is a relationship of any kind – friends, family, children, partner, colleagues, suppliers etc.... Yet, when we do get it right the rewards can be amazing – friendship, laughs, support, guidance ... the list is endless. So how good do you think HR is at building great relationships with the business?

At CourageousHR we find it amazing that most of HR’s effort, time and money is invested in technology and infrastructure yet research repeatedly shows that it is the quality of the HR Professional that makes the real difference in delivering real value to the business. Yet, how much effort is put into helping HR build really strong relationships with the business?

Therefore, this Newsletter is dedicated to providing you with some really practical guidance and best practices on how to create and maintain great business relationships.

Opinionated HR

BUT now the business is crying out for HR to challenge, get involved, speak out and lead (certainly that is the feedback we get from our business clients).
