Authors: We are currently commissioning in Professional Business.

“The profound ideas here will spark many conversations, and it's still rare to find a business book that really understands what HR does rather than talking in generalisms. Anyone thinking about the future of HR, and how to ensure it is more than merely reactive, will enjoy this immensely.”- People Management on Do We Need HR?
