The contemporary role of HR: Custodian of organisational conscience, deliverer of financial targets or strategic business leader?
Monday, 08 December 2014
10:00 - 15:30
The Work Foundation, 21 Palmer Street. London SW1H 0AD
Few would dispute that good, effective HR practices contribute positively to organisational health and wellbeing. Politicians aspire to economic growth based on high quality, high productivity workplaces. Organisations talk routinely about people being their greatest asset. But what does this mean in practice?
The Work Foundation and Prospect have jointly been exploring how these aspirations match up to the reality of work today: asking what evidence exists and whether or not it supports the rhetoric, as well as thinking about whether it’s time for a new approach.
The seminar addressed these questions:
- What does good work look like – how do we measure it?
- What is the business case for and outcomes of different approaches to performance management?
- How do we build and maintain trust in the workplace?
