This book -- a recent bestseller in the US -- is hailed by experts as a revolutionary approach to maximizing the value of, and return on, a company's investment in human capital. The book contends that people are assets to be valued and developed, rather than resources to be consumed.
Delivering on the Promise offers companies step-by-step framework to assess existing human capital policies and programs; design, implement and monitor new human capital policies that benefit both the organization and its employees; and align human capital programs to business strategy.
Co-authored by Arthur Andersen partners Brian Friedman, James Hatch and David M. Walker, the authors outline specific strategies companies can use to identify, evaluate and respond to key management issues such as recruitment, retention, retirement, performance management, reward and recognition, career development, succession planning, training, and organizational structure. The book also provides useful guidelines for improving legal compliance, employee and industrial relations, communications, and information flow.
