What's the evidence for...?

Started 7 months ago

Do you ever wonder what the scientific evidence says about a particular talent management practice? Do you find it difficult to access and understand scientific information? The most effective managerial decisions require both critical thinking and the use of the best available evidence and all too often it's the latter that's most difficult to source. If you haven't heard of Science For Work before then I really recommend their website, which is full of digestible, trustworthy summaries to help organisations understand what works and what doesn't work in the field of people management. They produce short blog posts that draw on peer reviewed studies on topics such as recruitment and selection, leadership, talent management, performance management and teamwork. It's a rich source of information and I hope you find it useful.
