A New Paradigm
In-Person | Thursday 25 January 2024
9.00 – 16.00
Evidence-based practice is a powerful tool that helps to make any profession more effective. Through helping HR practitioners to make better-informed decisions about the precise nature of the issues they face and how they can best be dealt with, Evidence-Based HR (EBHR) plays a critical role in enhancing the HR function and helping it make a stronger contribution to the business.
Following on from our 2023 research Strong Foundations: Evidence-Based HR – this event will take a closer look at what HR practitioners know about EBHR, present case studies and advice from those who’ve applied EBHR, and provide a range of practical and road-tested resources to help HR functions get started and maintain progress with EBHR. This event will also provide participants with a detailed overview of what EBHR means in practice and the tools required to start immediately applying EBHR.
- Develop a detailed understanding of HR professionals’ knowledge of EBHR, their current level of use of EBHR and what they perceive as barriers and facilitators.
- Through case studies, analyse how EBHR has been applied in practice and the challenges and benefits it brings.
- Gain insight and guidance from those who have already implemented EBHR.
- Understand and then start to apply a range of practical resources to your HR function.
Who is this event for?
HR practitioners who want to become more effective in their role, or help their function to also become more effective.
