Description

Deliver greater value to your organisation through HR transformation.

Transforming HR, Second edition offers robust, practical advice on changing the way human resource management is undertaken, walking you through the transformational process from initial planning to the evaluation of outcomes.

Since the first edition of the book many organisations have restructured their HR functions and invested in better HR information systems but with new issues emerging all the time, the journey towards transformation must continue. To support this journey the authors draw on their own experience and insights in this new edition, which features:

*Practical tools and approaches to guide planning, implementation and evaluation of transformation strategies aimed at increasing the value of HR’s contribution in organisations

*New chapters on HR’s value proposition, Web 2.0 and benefits realisation to demonstrate their critical role in transformation

*Cutting edge research on topics such as the use of social media technology by HR, with views and experience from senior practitioners across a broad range of organisations

*Fresh thinking on the people agenda to be addressed by progressive HR functions

Intended as an inspiring, hands-on guide to planning, implementing and evaluating transformation strategies, Transforming HR, second edition is an essential companion as you work to increase the value of HR in your organisation.

Reviews

Reddington, Williamson and Withers' practical guide to transforming HR thus amounts to a kind of managerial Viagra to help perk up the profession's resolve to face up to change. John Philpott, Chief economist, CIPD

Written in a concise and pragmatic manner, Transforming HR is an essential tool in demystifying the business of Change. Moreover it provides a demonstrable means of aligning and shaping HR to key business drivers…I highly recommend it.
Rami Cassis, Managing Director, Business Process Outsourcing, Atos Consulting

A very valuable book for those who are seeking to transform their HR function…many practical tools, techniques and workshop guidelines as well as perspectives from various practitioners who have undertaken this type of change.
Jan Bujko, Training & Development specialist working in the public sector, with previous experience at John Lewis Partnership, Kuoni Travel and the National Health Service

Provides a down to earth guide to making sense ofit all, stressing throughout the need to ensure that clients and key stakeholders are supportive of all that needs to be done. A book to keep close at hand!
Martin Moore, Head of Human Resources, The British Museum

Written in an accessible and practical style, the authors draw upon many relevant experiences of where HR has been transformed and provide a clear blueprint for action with a wealth of useful frameworks and tools. This is most definitely a ‘how to’ book and, as such, is a ‘must have’ for all HR professionals!
Jerry Arnott, Managing Director, Origin Consulting (previously senior HR practitioner at National Grid, Cable & Wireless and LloydsTSB)

This book will help HR practitioners and consultants challenged to 'transform HR' to move from fuzzy concept to practical reality. Theory is presented as common sense supported by clear guidance on practical implementation processes.
Terry Haskins, Managing Director, Spirit Level (previously senior HR practitioner at Shell and Cable & Wireless)
