An interview with Dean Royles, executive board chair at Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) in Great Britain, is presented. According to Royles, the challenge is to show that the true value of human resources (HR) lies not just in addressing line management issues, but also in creating sustainable organizations. He cites the HR graduate management training scheme he introduced in 2003. Royles adds HR needs to continue conveying the points of driving organizational performance.
