HR policy and strategy

Noelle MurphyEditor's message: The role of the HR department stretches from setting people policies and procedures to feeding into the business strategy. We conduct around 30 surveys of employer practice every year to ensure we are capturing the most up-to-date practice within HR.

Our Survey analysis > HR roles and responsibilities: 2015 XpertHR research is the latest research, tracking key HR metrics. One of the key metrics included is the ratio of HR practitioners to employers - over the thirteen years that we have been tracking this figure, we have seen this ratio change from a high of 1:118 to, where it stands today, 1:74.

XpertHR's survey on dress codes, with responses from 578 employers, finds that the majority of employers offer at least some guidance to employees on what is appropriate to wear at work.

Our data and benchmarking services include all of our latest findings, searchable by size and sector of organisation.
