Two perspectives are addressed in this review of where HR is going in 2011 by thirteen of IES's HR researchers.

In the first, we consider the recent experiences and research on restructuring organisations and the critical role of leadership in doing this successfully.

In the second, we consider more specific ways in which organisations are rebuilding morale and performance in their workforce as they emerge from recession and cost cutting.
