Executive Summary: Developing Commercial Acumen for the HR Function

This executive summary gives an overview of the full CRF research report – Developing Commercial Acumen for the HR Function. This report looks at how HR often has to justify itself over its role, its output and its added value. In some cases, this is deserved as we become involved in unsubstantiated opinion, fads and fashions, are reluctant to use data or are unable to evaluate our initiatives. Developing commercial acumen for the HR function in an organisation enables them to more effectively align with business objectives and priorities.
