Noelle MurphyEditor'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: 2015 XpertHR research we focus on key metrics, including budget figures, ratios of HR practitioners to employees and the use of HR metrics by the profession.
