Evidence-Based HR: From the What and Why, to the How To


How can we improve people-related decision making?

Pietro Marenco, Editor and Director of our partner ScienceForWork, wrote a comprehensive blogpost about how we can improve the quality of people-related decision making and how can we develop our skills for this.

It encompasses a report of the first full-blown, 3-day training course on evidence-based HR. Balance HR organized the course, in partnership with CEBMa, Ghent University, The VIGOR Unit, ScienceForWork and WisKeys. The training focussed on skill-development for evidence-based practice in HR and was the first of its kind.

The course was facilitated by 4 world renowned experts: Prof. Denise Rousseau, Prof. Rob Briner, Prof. Frederik Anseel and Dr. Eric Barends.
