HR Business Partners Directory

The HR Business Partners serve as the primary contacts between departments/schools and other subject matter experts within Human Resource Management and Development (HRMD). Business Partners provide assistance in a variety of areas, including employee relations, organizational/employee development, succession planning, compensation, staffing, benefits, payroll, alternative work arrangements, and recruitment. In addition, they consult with their respective units in evaluating, developing, and implementing processes that ensure effective and consistent human resources management practices and procedures.

HR Business Partners focus on building strong relationships with their units by:

  • Understanding the unit’s discipline, mission, and goals
  • Assisting the unit with long term human capital planning
  • Developing and maintaining a proactive customer advocacy role
  • Providing strategic organizational design and development
  • Serving as resources to ensure that the unit is in compliance with laws, rules, and regulations
  • Assisting with the implementation of HRMD strategies and policies
