Executive Summary: 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. This executive summary examines the key findings from the research.

HR Manifesto

CRF has been researching the field of HR management , and turning this into actionable recommendations implemented by HR functions, for over 20 years. We have built an understanding of how the function has evolved, how its reputation has varied and the fads that have come and gone. Our intention in this manifesto is to give our views on the business context of HR management, forces shaping HR as a function and ways in which the HR function can make an enhanced strategic contribution.
