HR is a function built on buzzwords and slogans such as “human capital” and “people are our most important asset,” yet something has been lost in translation when it comes to the perception-and the operation-of HR. Instead of a valuable resource for employees, managers, and executives, HR has gained the reputation of being the function that pushes paper and keeps the lights on. In HR From Now to Next: Reimagining the Workplace of Tomorrow, renowned HR and workforce technology thought leader Jason Averbook leverages over two decades of experience working with some of the world's top companies, executives, and their workforces, all in the name of bringing HR not only up to speed, but nudging it into hyper drive. This book is an often humorous, always insightful rallying call to not only chief human resource officers, but to anyone who interacts with the HR function, encouraging them to embrace the idea that “good enough” isn't good enough. Through quick-hitting, timely writing, and engaging graphics, HR From Now to Next imparts its readers with valuable insider knowledge from which they can glean the secrets to success. There are no silver bullets or magic potions promised inside; rather, the book provides a polished, revolutionary lens through which today's workforce can clearly see a better future. Averbook provides tips, takeaways, and action items that can be applied at any level-whether you're a manager or a C-suite executive, you'll find no shortage of inspirational food for thought within these pages.
