Compendium of CRF Research 2017


Within this short document, we present the executive summaries from a selection of our most recent work. While each of these articles explore a different issue, there are a number of good practice principles uniting them, all of which are required for a strong, coherent and effective people strategy.

The 2017 compendium includes research summaries from the following CRF research projects:

Today, organisations are under pressure to foster innovation, efficiency and speed, agility, and commercial acumen. In this regard, HR is failing to perform to the optimum. Poor definition and ambiguous responsibilities sometimes render the HR function unproductive.

CRF research seeks to address these challenges, while maintaining an independent view that leads to measurable improvements in organisational performance. Rethinking Talent Management report, for example, examines the current challenges seen by the HR function in light of global competition, scarce skills and demographic shifts that are putting particular pressure on talent.  It concludes with practical recommendations for improving talent management practices.

Individual summaries of each CRF research report can be downloaded by clicking the relevant research title in the list above.

Research Report: Strategic Workforce Analytics

Workforce analytics has become a hot topic in organisations over recent years, with significant claims of potential business benefits. And yet only a quarter (27%) of respondents to a recent CRF survey find that their organisation's workforce analytics capability allows them to identify opportunities to make decisions that lead to better business outcomes frequently or consistently.
