HR management for a new generation: 6 breakthrough eBooks help you

help your people deliver more value on every metric that matters

This unique 6 eBook package presents all the tools you need to tightly link HR strategy with business goals, systematically optimize the value of all your HR investments, and take your seat at the table where enterprise decisions are made. In The Definitive Guide to HR Communication: Engaging Employees in Benefits, Pay, and Performance, Alison Davis and Jane Shannon help you improve the effectiveness of every HR message you deliver. Learn how to treat employees as customers… clarify their needs and motivations … leverage the same strategies and tools your company uses to sell products and services… package information for faster, better decision-making… clearly explain benefits, pay, and policies… improve recruiting, orientation, outplacement, and much more. In Investing in People, Second Edition, Wayne Cascio and John W. Boudreau help you use metrics to improve HR decision-making, optimize organizational effectiveness, and increase the value of strategic investments. You'll master powerful solutions for integrating HR with enterprise strategy and budgeting -- and for gaining commitment from business leaders outside HR. In Financial Analysis for HR Managers, Dr. Steven Director teaches the financial analysis skills you need to become a true strategic business partner, and get boardroom and CFO buy-in for your high-priority initiatives. Director covers everything HR pros need to formulate, model, and evaluate HR initiatives from a financial perspective. He walks through crucial financial issues associated with strategic talent management, offering cost-benefit analyses of HR and strategic financial initiatives, and even addressing issues related to total rewards programs. In Applying Advanced Analytics to HR Management Decisions, pioneering HR technology expert James C. Sesil shows how to use advanced analytics and "Big Data" to optimize decisions about performance management, strategy alignment, collaboration, workforce/succession planning, talent acquisition, career development, corporate learning, and more. You'll learn how to integrate business intelligence, ERP, Strategy Maps, Talent Management Suites, and advanced analytics -- and use them together to make far more robust choices. In Compensation and Benefit Design, world-renowned compensation expert Bashker D. Biswas helps you bring financial rigor to compensation and benefit program development. He introduces a powerful Human Resource Life Cycle Model for considering compensation and benefit programs… fully addresses issues related to acquisition, general compensation, equity compensation, and pension accounting… assesses the full financial impact of executive compensation and employee benefit programs… and discusses the unique issues associated with international HR programs. Finally, in People Analytics, Ben Waber helps you discover powerful hidden social "levers" and networks within your company, and tweak them to dramatically improve business performance and employee fulfillment. Drawing on his cutting-edge work at MIT and Harvard, Waber shows how sensors and analytics can give you an unprecedented understanding of how your people work and collaborate, and actionable insights for building a more effective, productive, and positive organization. Whatever your HR role, these 6 eBooks will help you apply today's most advanced innovations and best practices to optimize workplace performance -- and drive unprecedented business value.

From world-renowned human resources experts Alison Davis, Jane Shannon, Wayne Cascio, John W. Boudreau, Steven Director, James C. Sesil, Bashker D. Biswas, and Ben Waber.
