About the Author

Linda Holbeche is Research and Policy Director at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). Linda is responsible for leading the CIPD's extensive management research programme and the translation of that knowledge into practice for the benefit of all those involved in the management and development of people. She heads a 40 strong team, including 12 expert research advisers, and is a key spokesperson and advocate for the people management and development profession, in the media and in relations with government and other opinion formers. Linda was previously with the Work Foundation where she was Director of Leadership and Consultancy and prior to this she was Director of Research and Strategy at Roffey Park Institute for 12 years.


"Linda Holbeche describes the alignment of HR strategy with business strategy as "the holy grail of HR teams" and, equipped with this wonderful book, it's an objective which I believe many more of those teams will be able to achieve. By combining a balanced and incisive review of the latest academic thinking with well-chosen and insightful examples of current best practice, she has created a valuable resource which is inspirational and pragmatic in equal measure."
- David Fairhurst, Senior Vice President and Chief People Officer, McDonald's UK and Northern Europe

"As leaders face enormous business challenges, they increasingly turn to HR for insight and support. Linda's book guides HR professionals in giving thoughtful and useful advice. It offers clear guidelines and approaches for HR to help leaders better identify and solve their problems. The ideas in the book are comprehensive, thoughtful, and accessible. This wonderful book will help line managers know what to expect from HR and HR professionals know how to meet those expectations."
- Dave Ulrich, Professor of Business, University of Michigan and Partner, The RBL Group
