Developing a Strategic HR Approach

Developing a Strategic HR Approach is a research report that looks to apply the principles of social science to HR practices, to determine what factors make a difference and under what circumstances. We don’t believe in “best practice”, which implies one size fits all, but we seek to identify good practice and define a set of operating principles that apply under most circumstances. Our view is that the business circumstances and conditions should influence HR’s approach fundamentally.
