Chiaji ★★★★☆

The book has got information that enables an individual/manager to acquire an insight on how to make employees better than they are.


In the past 30 years, all major business functions apart from HR have been transformed by the introduction of new processes and systems. Each of these approaches can be judged a success by having fulfilled all 5 criteria of a successful transformation. Not to be outdone, HR has explored many different initiatives including Business Partnering, Human Capital Metrics, Engagement, Talent and HR Outsourcing amongst others.
