Professional People Management & Developement
Who is Paul Kearns?
Paul developed the theory and practice of HR Maturity which eventually led to him becoming one of the founders, and Chair, of the Maturity Institute; the leading professional body in Human Governance and Human Capital Management. He has recently been instrumental in establishing a ground-breaking research project into the S&P500 with Harvard LWP. As Senior Partner at OMS LLP he has helped to develop the first Human Capital Reporting Template©, the OMI Global Index of Human Capital Management© and the Human Capital Risk Grid© which have led to OMS being recognised as the “foremost authority” in the finance and investment communities in London.
He has written many articles and books on the subjects of HR strategy, measurement, evaluation, ROI and, more recently, setting the highest Professional standards in HR and organizational learning using the latest Evidence-Based Management methods.
Paul is still, first and foremost, a down-to-earth, HCM practitioner who always links his consulting advice directly to evidence of business value. However, by tirelessly pushing out the boundaries of strategic HCM his work has increasingly been referenced by those in the academic world who want to bridge the gulf between theory and practice. This led to him teaching HR strategy for over ten years as a core a core MBA course. He travels widely as a highly valued consultant, keynote speaker, teacher and facilitator.
