Exceptional Talent: How to Attract, Acquire and Retain the Very Best Employees
Exceptional Talent: How to Attract, Acquire and Retain the Very Best Employees

by Mervyn Dinnen and Matt Alder
Attracting, hiring, developing and retaining the right people is crucial to an organization's success. The stakes have never been higher: a 2015 study by CAP suggests that the average cost of employee attrition is 20% of a mid-level employee's annual salary and up to 213% of a high-level executive's salary. In a business environment changing so rapidly that jobs which will be essential in 2020 don't even exist yet, Exceptional Talent examines how changes in technology, communication, and employee preferences are impacting the talent journey.

The Workforce Scorecard

The Workforce Scorecard: Managing Human Capital To Execute Strategy
by Mark A. Huselid, Brian E. Becker, Richard W. Beatty
  The Workforce Scorecard argues that current management and human resource practices hinder employees' ability to contribute to strategic goals. To maximize the power of their workforce, organizations must meet three challenges: view their workforce in terms of contribution rather than cost; replace benchmarking metrics with measures that differentiate levels of strategic impact; and make line managers and HR professionals jointly responsible for executing workforce initiatives.

Mapping Motivation: Unlocking the Key to Employee Energy and Engagement

The End of Performance Appraisal

The End of Performance Appraisal: A Practitioners' Guide to Alternatives in Agile Organisations (Management for Professionals)
by Armin Trost
  This book demonstrates, in detail, why annual performance appraisals might still work in hierarchical environments, but largely fail in agile ones. The annual performance appraisal is one of the world's most widely used management tools. For many years, it was indeed seen as a pre-requisite for successful leadership and professional management. While most managers and employees have always been sceptical in this respect, those at a strategic level are now also realising it causes more harm than good, and a growing number of leading companies have similarly abolished this approach.

How to Measure Human Resource Management

How to Measure Human Resource Management
by Jac Fitz-Enz, Barbara Davison
  Once thought of simply as the place where employee records are kept, today's human resources department has evolved into a manager of human capital. However, HR faces challenges­­among them providing necessary services at competitive cost, enhancing productivity, and justifying budgets at a time when outsourcing firms threaten its very existence. Now more than ever, HR needs to position itself as a value-added partner that contributes to the strategic goals of its organization.
