HR magazine launches website to celebrate Most Influential practitioners and thinkers in HR

HR magazine has launched a dedicated website for its annual ranking of the Most Influential practitioners and thinkers in the sector.

HR's Most Influential list recognises the practitioners and thinkers who have had the greatest influence in the field of people strategy.

This is the fifth year of the ranking and HR has a new partner, Ashridge Business School, which will provide a robust analysis of the most influential practitioners and thinkers, building on the methodology established in previous years.

HR Most Influential 2010, in association with Ceridian, will be the most in-depth investigation of its kind in the industry, creating a definitive list of the top influencers in the sector as well as developing a deeper understanding of what defines influence in HR.

The 2010 ranking will be revealed on the new website  on September 14 following the unveiling of the list at a prestigious event at Claridge's on September 13.

Until then, the website contains previous rankings, information on the methodology and comments and opinion from Ceridian and Ashridge Business School.

There will also be interviews with the people voted top in the past, including last year’s number one thinker Dave Ulrich, professor of business at the University of Michigan, and top HR director David Fairhurst of McDonald’s, as well as video highlights from last year's event at Claridge's.
