Human Resource Professional Development Program - Hong Kong

Program Description

HR professionals have a unique opportunity to contribute to their organizations if they are able to operate as business partners. This program teaches you how to combine functional excellence with insight and appreciation for how HR must contribute strategically to the business.

Dr. Jon Younger, a leading author, educator, and consultant in strategic HR, will help HR professionals gain practical insight on what it means to be an effective business partner.
