About the Webinar

It’s now 15 years since the CIPD published its groundbreaking research into understanding how HR drives business performance. In the intervening time, the work has become one of the profession’s most influential studies quoted by thousands of HR practitioners. However, does this revolutionary model stand the test of time and are there new factors in the workplace that have an impact on the people performance relationship?

In this, the first of our free Learning Bites, a new series of informative webinars, we ask the opinion of Angela Baron, who commissioned the research for the CIPD all those years ago.

Angela, whose book Managing Performance is still regarded as a must read for those studying for their Advanced Diploma, is a consultant with Watson Martin Partnership and advises on all levels of CIPD qualifications. 

Here, she discusses how greater complexity, constant change in the workplace and the continuing poor reputation of HR in business are just some of the issues impacting on how the model is interpreted and implemented.
