Workforce Stability, Your Competitive Edge
by Roger E. Herman and Joyce L. Gioia
He’s back … Roger E. Herman. This is the third book we’ve reviewed by this highly respected Certified Management Consultant. The reason, of course, is quite obvious. He writes great books that we think deserve your attention. He has his thumb on the pulse of what’s happening in the area of attracting and retaining the best possible workforce available today.
In this book, Roger joins forces with another very highly respected CMC, Joyce L. Gioia, and the Fellows of the Workforce Stability Institute—a not-for-profit education and research organization. Here is your opportunity to capitalize on the knowledge, experience, and research of some of the most respected consultants and authors in the field of human resources.
It would take far too much time and space to detail the useful content of this offering. However, to provide you with a flavor of its diverse information, let me share a few subject areas … Our Changing Workforce, the Strategic Staffing Process, Selection Tools and Their Applications, Recruiting the Best, Performance-Based Interviews, Computer-Aided Job Analysis and Selection, Orientation and Bonding, Career Development as a Retention and Succession Planning Tool, Training for Retention, Inspiring Front-Line Workers, Internal Marketing, and Recognition for Performance and Retention. If you can say you don’t have a challenge or a concern in one of these areas or you wouldn’t be interested in some terrific guidelines and strategies in these areas, you should consider penning your own best seller. Until then, add this one to your bookshelf.
