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.

How Can Evidence-Based Thinking Help Us Evaluate Performance?

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? Through media-based and experimental findings, Phil challenges the understanding behind evidence-based management and the 'bumps' along the way we should be aware of when making business decisions.
