Making HR A Strategic Partner

Remove Barriers to Make Lasting, Strategic Partnerships with HR 

When the organizational barriers come down and HR Business Partners (HRBPs) become more strategic, they can improve employee performance by up to 22%, employee retention by up to 24%, revenue by up to 7%, and profit by up to 9%. Let CEB show you how to get the most out of your HR department.


Make HR a strategic partner for your organization by removing organizational barriers.  These barriers inhibit the effectiveness of even the most capable HRBPs. Our research has shown organizations that improve HRBP competencies and minimize or remove these organizational barriers can nearly double the number of HRBPs who are effective at strategic activities—from 19% today to 40% by 2017.


Four organizational barriers include:

  • Lack of clarity into how to apply competencies in day-to-day work
  • Being tasked to provide transactional support rather than strategic insight
  • Tensions among functional groups that inhibit collaboration within HR
  • Lack of coordination with functional partners outside of HR
