“This book is all about talent…strategic talent. It addresses the need to assess, invest, reinvest or divest of the talent that really makes a difference — the talent in a company that has a profound impact upon the creation of customer and economic value. The roles of HR and hire managers — too often blurred — are brought into sharp focus. This is a must read.”— Craig Eric Schneier, Ph.D. Executive Vice President Human Resources, Public Affairs and Communications Biogen Idec
According to Becker, Huselid, & Beatty, many companies fall into the trap of spending too much time and money on low performers in nonstrategic roles, while high performers in strategic roles aren't getting the necessary resources, development opportunities, or rewards.
In The Differentiated Workforce, the authors expand on their previous books – The HR Scorecard and The Workforce Scorecard – and recommend that you manage your workforce like a portfolio – with disproportionate investments in the jobs that create the most wealth.
Based on two decades of academic research and experience working with hundreds of companies and executives – The Differentiated Workforce will give you the tools to truly transform your talent into strategic impact.
Learn how to:
- Create a differentiated workforce that competitors can’t easily copy
- Differentiate the truly strategic capabilities in your company
- Identify your wealth-creating "A" positions
- Articulate the roles of HR and line managers
- Develop the right measures for your organization
