Executive Development Programme in HR Business Partnering



In today's competitive world, the human element is considered as the most critical element determining the success of every organization. Realising the limited ability of other assets to differentiate the organization from its competitors, effective managers are shifting their focus towards human assets. Still organizations report huge variations in taking advantage of this critical asset due to the inability of their HR and line managers to design solutions relevant for respective organizations.
