“The Differentiated Workforce…provides a roadmap to differentiating your business through strategic human capital investment. At GE, the practice of putting the best people on the most important work, started with identifying what the most important work was. This book makes the point eloquently, while providing practical insights on how to do this in your own organization.”— Kate DCamp, Senior Executive Advisor, Cisco Systems, formerly Senior Vice President Human Resources at Cisco
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
