About People + Strategy

Published by HRPS, People + Strategy delivers the most current theory, research and practice in strategic human resource management, and it consistently ranks among the top benefits in surveys among HRPS members. The publication focuses on HR best practices that help executives consistently improve HR performance and drive organizational development and effectiveness. As SHRM executive network, HR People + Strategy is a strategically focused network of influential HR executives representing the world's most prominent organizations.


People + Strategy's audiences comprises top-level HR executives who seek, develop and implement strategic solutions on behalf of their organizations and the profession at large. Nearly 70 percent of subscribers are at the director level or higher, and roughly half are at the president/CEO, CHRO or vice president level. More than half of People + Strategy's audience represents companies with revenues of $500 million or greater. 


If you sell a product or service that these human resources management executives need or should know about, or can recommend to others, you should advertise in People + Strategy. The journal is published quarterly and the number of ads accepted each issue is limited.
