Research which underpins our The People Profession; now and for the future (formerly Profession for the Future) strategy and represents part of our journey to define what it will take for the HR profession of the future to meet its full potential to champion better work and working lives – for the benefit of individuals, businesses, economies and society.

Our report, From best to good practice HR: Developing principles for the profession, aims to inform the work on defining and testing a new set of principles that will help HR professionals make better decisions and advise business leaders what to do. The research draws on a number of literature reviews, a survey with nearly 10,000 HR practitioners, business leaders and line managers in the UK, US, Asia, the Middle East and North Africa on professional decision-making at work, conducted by YouGov.
