We know that the world of work is changing. We know that this change will accelerate and proliferate in the months and years ahead. Crucially, we believe in the power of the people profession to actively drive these changes, not merely respond to them.

That’s why research has, and will, form the basis for all of our People Profession: now and for the future work. This page is where you’ll find the latest insights from our research and what it means for you as a people professional; both what you need to be doing now, and the strategic shifts you need to keep in mind for the future. You’ll also find links to relevant tools and resources to take the action you need.
