Hello, everyone. It is my honor and privilege to bring you a groundbreaking Human Resources Research Report® that covers the demographics, behaviors, attitudes and beliefs of the modern HR Director.

For the purposes of providing a statistically valid report, LFR Inc® asked 989 human resources directors to participate in online polls and in-depth focus groups during the fourth quarter of 2013. Peer-review committees—comprised of business professors who teach HR theory but have never worked in the corporate world—validated the data and provided further insight on future research opportunities.

What you read here may challenge your long-held beliefs about the typical Human Resources Director. You may be surprised, shocked, and a little frightened by the results. The key is to read this research with an open mind and decide for yourself if Human Resources is a relevant and important function within your organization.

Thank you for your time.
