Chicago - HR People and Strategy (HRPS) and the Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) are pleased to announce a new strategic research alliance that will enhance the award-winning content of People & Strategy, the quarterly journal of HRPS. The journal will feature a dedicated i4cp research section that will extend the value of existing personal and team development materials already available to subscribers.

The i4cp Research Corner will provide new insights from its leading-edge human capital research and present applicable information on human resource topics that contribute to the achievement of organizational effectiveness, including:

  • HR Strategy & Planning
  • Leadership Development
  • Talent Management
  • Organizational Effectiveness
  • Building a Strategic HR Function

"This journal provides the kind of content that will help develop the strategic thinking of our membership," said Jay Jamrog, Senior Vice President of Research for i4cp. "We've always had our own research and now we can offer a more formal and scholarly journal to the materials that will help grow our members and our profession."

In addition to the most current theory and practices in strategic human resource management, the journal consistently features content by prominent thought leaders; recent contributions include articles by Dave Ulrich, Ed Lawler, John Boudreau, Lynda Gratton, Marcus Buckingham, Tamara Erickson, Morgan McCall, Ed Schein, W. Warner Burke, Karen Stephenson, Charles Handy, Ben Schneider and Peter Capelli.

"I've been connected with both professional associations for many years and I'm very pleased that we could collaborate in a way that it will help our profession move forward in its evolution," said Dr. Richard Vosburgh, Chief Development Officer for HRPS. "People & Strategy is the kind of journal that has scholarly research but is always cast in an applied organizational kind of way; not overly academic."
