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 strategy 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, looks at the role HR should play in helping develop and execute strategy, and how HR strategy can become more business-relevant. Key issues covered include:
• How overall HR strategy can be more closely aligned to business direction and function
• Helping HR to adopt a commercial mindset
• Clarifying the HR strategy and purpose and how that connects to the organisation’s value proposition

Action points and methodologies for improvement are also included in the report.

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.
