Book Description

Faced with numerous challenges, from globalism to economic turbulence, organizations need an Human Resources function that can lead from the front. The process of transforming HR is complex (and rarely linear). It involves creating a function that can direct the strategic debate, gain agreement and then execute and measure the results which, for some, involves a highly complex and often painful process of change. In this book the authors describe best practice in talent management for the HR function. They share, and guide you through, their model for successful HR development, and point you to potential solutions and good practice which has worked for other companies. This book is part of the Gower HR Transformation Series which uses a blend of conceptual frameworks, practical advice and global case study examples to cover each of the main elements of the process. The books follow a standard format to make them easy to read and reference. Together, the titles in the series create a definitive guide to HR transformation from one of the leading specialist HR transformation consultancies; an organization that has been involved in HR transformation projects for clients as diverse as Bombardier Transportation, Marks & Spencer, Barnardo's, Oxfam, Schroders, HM Prison Service, Transport for London and Vodafone.
