Thank you for your interest in our “Unlocking the Black Box… 15 Years on” webinar recording.

It’s now some time since the CIPD published its ground-breaking 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?

We ask the opinion of Angela Baron in this webinar, 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 an associate consultant with Reed Learning.
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.
