"Business partnering is a very cost-effective and efficient way to fill gaps in organisations' current knowledge and skills, giving them the confidence to commit to longer-term initiatives that require external support.

Partnering provides more than just support and complementary skills, it creates a trusting relationship that provides a unique opportunity for mutual learning and development."

The Work Practice



Business Partnering

Dedicated Support
As well as offering our range of services on an ad hoc basis, The Work Practice offers a dedicated, 'always available', Business Partner solution to both client organisations and associate companies.

Longer-Term Planning
By using our retained services option, clients can benefit from having an integrated and dedicated service provider to support and complement their operations and programmes.

This option means that clients can confidently commit to longer term policies and practices that require ongoing 'external' support - such that require specialist knowledge, skills, or attributes (e.g. independence or objectivity) that the they might not readily have

It's the equivalent of having The Work Practice as part of your company, underwritten by Service Level Agreements, to complete your bigger picture.

You might want a dedicated mediation service, or an independent member for your grievance and disciplinary panels and investigations. You might want to have an occupational psychologist as part of your internal job interviewing or promotions processes, or to be a member of your employee welfare or health & safety committees.

If you're looking for consistent and integrated management and leadership training programmes, an integral careers counselling service, dedicated psychometrics administration, or ongoing change management support, then business partnering could be the best option for you.

Almost all of our services (and some individuals!) can be retained. To find out more about your business partnering opportunities, please contact us.
