Evidence Based HR Management

Development Programme
Level: General   /   Suitable for in-house

Explore the principles of evidence-based decision-making to make and argue for better decisions.

Our new Profession Map defines the knowledge, behaviours and values which should underpin today’s people profession. To fulfil our purpose of championing better work and working lives, through the new Profession Map we encourage the people profession to be evidence-based, as well as principles-led and outcomes-driven, taking an evidence-based approach in order to contribute to better decision making in any situation. While professional opinion is important and must be considered, it holds more weight when supported by robust evidence from several and varied sources.

Please note that this development programme requires completing two pre-course online modules. The modules must be completed in the participants’ own time.

In this short video, some of the lead tutors offer an introduction to the what, why and how of evidence-based practice.
