Guest blog: Sell the sizzle, not the evidence-based sausage

Whenever something goes wrong in the workplace there is rarely a shortage of people queueing up to ask why and how we got here. One of the most important disciplines in work (and outside) is good decision-making. Learning how to make decisions that have the greatest likelihood of being right.

In our latest guest blog, David D’Souza, Head of London Branch at CIPD, shares some practical advice on how to influence and help your organisation become more evidence-based.

Read our 'Sell the sizzle, not the evidence-based sausage' blog post.

Practitioner guide: Evaluating the impact of training and development

Many organisations make significant investment in the training and development of employees, without knowing if it’s having an impact. This free guide outlines the relevance of an evidence-based approach to evaluating training and development, and sets out an accessible process that HR practitioners can use to guide their evaluation projects.
