Career paths and development


HR Business Partners (HRBPs) are the focal point for advising managers across the business on key people questions. They:

  • Help implementing business strategy by building organizational capability.
  • Enable business unit leaders to maximize their talents and strengths, accelerating their own performance and development as well as that of the people they lead.
  • Contribute to and drive implementation of our Group People Strategy.

HRBPs work locally with senior managers and line managers on long-term planning for local HR matters to ensure our People Strategy is consistent globally.

As they progress, overall business acumen and coaching skills are enhanced. They also learn to challenge established procedures and, working with relevant specialists, find ways to optimize how we work.

At the most senior level, HRBPs lead large-scale, global change and development initiatives. Thanks to their comprehensive knowledge of many functional domains, they also learn how to shape the organization's complex internal business environment, creating practical solutions that add commercial value.


Each center has four main streams: recruitment, talent and learning, remuneration and administration. Entry-level HR employees often begin their careers in one of these areas or as analysts focusing on data, systems or metrics before developing or specializing further. Employees in HR centers also ensure compliance with local legislation and HR policies as well as, from time to time, they work on cross-functional initiatives.


We depend on your growth and development because the more you make of your talent, the better we do as a company.

So, in addition to the personalized development plans that we agree on with all our employees, we also support you if you wish to obtain professional qualifications in HR.

As long as there is a clear business need, we help you prepare for external certification programs with leading bodies.


Career flexibility is a key ABB principle. We always try to support you when your interests and priorities change, helping you move between countries, businesses, business lines and functions. It is one of the main advantages of working for a truly global business with a very broad portfolio of products and services.

Some of our people find new opportunities in other areas, such as Communications, Marketing and Sales, and General Management.

What we look for


We hire people with broad, world-class HR backgrounds at all levels. The functional skills we look for vary, but the people skills we look for are consistent across HR. Our people are:

Honest and trustworthy: Act with integrity at all times; able to ensure compliance with relevant policies, regulations; challenge unethical behavior.

Good influencers: Able to generate persuasive and compelling arguments to influence others, directly or indirectly.

Change agents: Challenge the status quo, leading, implementing and monitoring change within the workplace.

Results-focused: Take responsibility for achieving results and objectives; consistently strive to meet or exceed expectations.

Commercially astute: Combine commercial insight and HR knowledge to improve business performance.
