Full Description

The must-have resource for HR managers who want to lessen the learning curve, succeed in their role, and set themselves up for future growth.

The world of work continues to grow more complex with hybrid work, a shortage of talent, and a mandate for more inclusive environments where employees can do their very best work every day with peace of mind. These changes have created many exciting opportunities but also carry big risks for HR managers on the front lines in organizations in transition.

Bestselling author and Human Resources expert Paul Falcone breaks down the landscape for new managers to quickly get up to speed covering recruitment, employee relations, compensation and benefits, "HR Defense" legal and compliance strategies to keep your organization safe, as well as "HR Offense" strategies to help drive organizational strategy and performance. This one-of-a-kind guide will:

  • Round out your exposure to the full gamut of disciplines within the HR suite of services.
  • Share deeper-dive knowledge and insights into particular areas of the HR world to shortcut the natural learning curve.
  • Maximize certain features of HR programs and service offerings to help you attract, develop, and retain top talent.
  • Raise red flags in areas that could potentially expose you or your organization to unwanted legal liability.
  • Help you master the levels of HR so that you can perform agilely and skillfully across the full HR spectrum.
