RBL White Paper: The State of the HR Profession

May 1st, 2012

Over the past twenty-five years the demographics and competencies of HR professionals have evolved significantly. According to a white paper released by Dave Ulrich and his colleagues at the RBL Group, the number of women has jumped from 30 to 70 percent; 51 percent of HR professionals now have graduate degrees; and there has been a distinct trend towards specialization in contrast to the former dominance of HR generalists.

Drawing on a series of surveys conducted every five years since 1987 that captured data from over 20,000 individuals across a variety of industries and geographies, the research highlights some of the macro trends occurring within the profession.
