That is a question we would all like the answer to, wouldn’t we? I tip my hat to the person who coined this term. While Dave Ulrich popularized ‘HR Business Partners’ in the 1990s, I am not entirely sure where it first originated. Whoever did come up with the term, without doubt, takes the Oscar … Continue reading What does an HR Business Partner (HRBP) do?
All through February, we will be celebrating HRBP month right here on my blog.
Much as I hate to say this, the strategic HRBP role comes with its fair share of time sensitive transactional chores. Given the deluge of these on an erratic basis, our day can look rather messy. It is entirely possible that you walk into work with a well-planned day that pivots within 10 minutes into a … Continue reading A day in the life of an HRBP
One of my first posts on this blog talks about my dissonance with the performance improvement plan. Turns out, that post has generated more views than all others combined. Fast forward to 3 years later, I’m talking about PIP’s again – only this time, I’m talking about how to survive one. If you are on … Continue reading How to survive a performance improvement plan
If you know me, you know that this is one area I am obsessed it. B couldn’t possibly stand for anything else. I have talked incessantly about branding both here and other places. However, this time I am not going to talk about branding your company, your events, teams, programs or the like. This post … Continue reading A-Z of HRBP #B: Branding (Part 1)
It wasn’t hard to decide, it really wasn’t. When initially I thought of this series, I feared that I’d have lots of topics competing for a letter. Should A be for Appreciation? Do appraisals better fit under P as performance management? But with March just behind us, I cannot think of a better post to … Continue reading A-Z of HRBP #A: Appraisals

This isn’t the age of laziness. If anything, it’s the age of constant running and stumbling. Being rushed has its own fallouts but being lazy has been out of fashion for a long time now. Unfortunately, the HR folks (including myself) have been lazy for a while now. Why do I say this? I don’t … Continue reading Don’t be lazy!
The 7%-38%-55% rule has been around for a long time now, yet the number of people who actually pay any attention to it is dismally low. There is a reason why Margaret Thatcher took on a voice coach and a lot of our leaders around the world sound the way they do. We are programmed … Continue reading Sounding like a leader
These are my favorite words after ‘disruptive’. After all, these are top trending words, especially after Satya Nadella’s ancient goof up. Women empowerment is not a new focus area. Nor is diversity and inclusion. It’s been talked about to death and yet the statistics don’t reflect what we’d like them to. With women making up … Continue reading Diversity & Inclusion
