Investing In People
IN THIS SUMMARY
Decisions about talent, human capital, and organizational effectiveness are increasingly central to the strategic success of virtually all organizations. Unfortunately, these decisions are often addressed with limited measures or faulty logic. HR leaders need more rigorous, logical, and principles-based frameworks. The fundamental principle of Investing in People is that HR measurement is valuable to the extent that it improves vital decisions about talent and how it is organized.
In Investing in People, Cascio and Boudreau offer powerful, quantitative techniques for tracking the true effectiveness of talent policies and practices, demonstrating logical connections to financial and business outcomes, and using HR metrics to make better decisions. The book is designed for professionals who want to systematically focus HR investments on achieving maximum business value.
