This is the executive summary of the full CRF research report on Evidence-based HR: From Fads to Facts? Compiled from desk research, a CRF survey and many interviews with HR leaders, experts and academics, this report examines in depth what evidence-based HR (EBHR) is - and is not.

Topics covered in this executive summary include:

• The background and current context of evidence-based HR
• Common forms of information used in evidence-based HR
• The evolution of data in evidence-based HR approaches
• Using external research evidence in EBHR practices
• Aligning evidence-based HR with the wider business context
• Identifying common characteristics of reflective professional practice within EBHR
