Clearly the “one-minute-manager” for HR managers, Heroic HR describes how HR technology can bring credibility, strategic thinking, value, and vision to an organization, giving the HR function the opportunity to truly become a Strategic Partner.
Heroic HR, a new book by Marc S. Miller, provides a quick, easy, lively and valuable treatise on how to ensure that the HR function in your organization is viewed as a Strategic Partner. Miller believes that the HR function should be considered vital, if not critical, to the continuing success of the corporate enterprise. A guest presenter at the recent IHRIM conference in Chicago, Miller stated that “HR and its related activities must be interwoven with the overall strategies of the organization. And all aspects of a business have an impact on its most important and unique resource: Its Human resource.”
Here’s what Dave Duffield, co-founder and co-CEO of Workday, Inc. has to say about Heroic HR: “If you’re languishing in your role as an HR professional, read this little gem of a book. Marc clearly shows how cloud-based HR technology can bring credibility, strategic thinking, value, vision, and passion to an organization, giving HR the opportunity to transform the way it delivers information, advice, and service.”
