Editor's message: The role of the HR department stretches from setting people policies and procedures to feeding into the business strategy.
In Survey analysis > HR roles and responsibilities: 2014 XpertHR research we report that the current priority for HR departments in private-sector companies is pensions auto-enrolment, pay and benefits issues, and reviewing terms and conditions. Redundancies and restructuring, meanwhile, remain the priority for our public-sector respondents.
