Nominate your HR Most Influential Thinkers 2019

HR magazine would like your thoughts on who should feature on our HR Most Influential Thinkers 2019 list, in partnership with LifeSight

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?

You can view 2018's ranking here.

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 jenny.roper@markallengroup.com.
