The Institute of Employment Studies

A recent partnership discussion has brought PTHR closer to the IES in looking at some of the issues faced by the working world in the 21st century.

The organisation exists to be a leading independent center for research and evidence-based consultancy to provide insights on employment and human resource management topics in order to help improve policy and practice.

Ranging from supported research by a particular organisation or sector, to partnerships with academic or non-profit organisations. The IES exists to collect evidence that supports challenging developments in work and hypotheses queries in order to derive insight from applied research that informs strong practice and decision making.

In 2020, PTHR will be undertaking a series of short research projects looking into things like cult workplaces, career transitions in the digital era, and HR automation. This will be examined through the lens of value creation and ethical considerations.
