About us

Inside HR takes a look inside the business of HR and connects the dots between people, performance, productivity and profit. Inside HR extends far beyond traditional HR competencies and shows readers how to implement those critical practices proven to drive organisational performance and long-term commercial success. 

A blend of strategy, finance, people, technology and leadership, Inside HR fills an important niche for business leaders looking to maximise their most important resource – people. Inside HR is independent of industry associations, employer groups or unions, major media companies or government.
