High Impact HR – How do we create a more business-relevant function?

In today's rapidly changing business environment, it's more important than ever for HR to be commercial, close to the business, and clearly aligned to business strategy. However, the reality for many organisations is that HR is often disconnected from business priorities, and HR's contribution to critical strategic and commercial objectives is not always clear.

CRF’s new research report considers the current state of the HR function, and looks at the role HR should play in helping develop and execute strategy, and how HR can become more business-relevant. Action points and methodologies for improvement are also included in the report.

Post-Meeting Review Notes: Thriving in Complex Systems

CRF's masterclass on 8 March 2017 set out to discuss the factors leading to this complexity and how to deal with it, becoming aware of the traps we can fall into, and building the capability to lead in new ways. Doing this in practice was illustrated through two case study organisations, Tesco and BP.

In his presentation from CRF's workshop - Developing a Business Relevant HR Function - Phil Rosenzweig asks two very important questions for HR: - Do we know high performance when we see it? - What shapes our thinking about high performance?
