the important role of HR and OD as enablers.
Professor Rob Briner, Scientific Director of the Centre for Evidence Based Management
Evidenced Based HR
Rob described the principles of evidence based HR, how these could be brought to life, the challenges that stand in the way of demonstrating organisational impact and how these can be overcome.
Steve Whiddett, WHE Uk Ltd
Performance Management isn’t all about people but do HR practices make it so?
Steve shared simplistic models of performance lead to blame or praise but not to performance management. Using values and behaviours, Steve described why and how it doesn’t have to be this way.
Jonny Gifford Jonny provided a rapid evidence based assessment of the best available research on what works and what doesn’t in goal setting and performance appraisals; giving a sneak insight into the latest CIPD research ‘Could do better?’ which was launched shortly after the conference on 5 December 2016.
