ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a research which investigated the thinking styles and workplace experiences of a sample of human resources (HR) practitioners in Great Britain pursuing graduate or Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) membership. On overage, respondents scored more highly on Type I(creativity-generating, evaluative, focusing on whole picture). Although focus groups doubted whether the creativity-generating attributes of Type I suited the reality of the HR function.
