Our criteria for what makes an academic or author influential are:
- Practical relevance – do they understand the issues facing HR/business today and suggest ideas that can be utilised in practice?
- Commercial/service impact – does their thinking have a positive impact on the business?
- Visibility and sharing information – do they share their ideas widely, engaging with the HR community and not just publishing a paper/book?
- Works published/influential in the past year – have they said anything of significance in the past year?
- Originality/challenge – are they making HR directors sit up and take notice?
- Personal influence – do they command respect among HR practitioners and within their own community?
Please take just a moment to leave details of who you think deserves to be recognised on this list and why. These suggestions will be debated by a panel of HR directors at the end of June.
All HR Most Influential 2019 lists, including our HR Most Influential Practitioners ranking, will be announced 16 September.
If you are a practitioner or thinker keen to submit evidence on why you should be considered please contact editor Jenny Roper, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
