HR is the single most stimulating source of strategic, people-centric, business advice, practice and dialogue. For people-focused, forward-thinking, business leaders who want insight into, and examples of, business-contextualised HR to develop high-performing organisations. HR will always seek to give meaningful, relevant and useful business focus to its content. HR magazine does not provide you with 'same old story', but instead always looks to present information strategically.
How HR can weather a recession With the cost-of-living crisis showing no signs of mercy, inflation rates skyrocketing and record lows for the British pound, recession remains a threatening presence in the UK. Taking lessons from 2008, and the legacy of the coronavirus pandemic, our cover story looks at what HR needs to weather an economic downturn, from solid workplace planning to tried and tested methods of creating stability in an organisation. It will look at how HR can support both its wider workforce and its own people team, given the HR department traditionally has budgets cut during economic downturn. A recession may be unpredictable, but with the right preparation it’s another chance for HR to show its colours.
