The world of work is evolving fast and is growing more diverse. There’s no ‘golden rule’ or ‘best practice’ that enables HR professionals to operate effectively in this rapidly changing environment. Practitioners’ ability to recognise and resolve ethical dilemmas is fundamental to remaining effective when exercising professional judgement. This review is focused on helping practitioners navigate their choices about designing and implementing HR systems and practices. It identifies eight lenses which offer different perspectives on work dilemmas.
The review will feed into our Profession for the Future strategy and help us develop a clearer definition of what better work and working lives means.
"Understanding the different ethical perspectives, and demonstrating sensitivity to the ones
that matter in a particular organisational context at a particular time, will be a core skill for
the HR professional of the future – one that the CIPD is committed to continue developing."
