Becoming an evidence-based HR profession

With so much information at our fingertips and in an era that has been described as ‘post-truth’, it can be harder than ever to make good decisions – to know what advice is trustworthy and how to cut through vast swathes of opinion. In this session, we explore how evidence-based practice (EBP) can be used to improve HR practice and leverage influence in HR in organisations. What are the challenges in managerial decision making, how is research evidence used, and can EBP really help the HR profession become more effective, authoritative and influential?
