The Future of Human Resources: Unlocking Human Potential


Tim’s timely, thought-provoking book challenges some of the long-held mindsets and perspectives and offers an alternative path for the future of HR. –David Concannon, Head of Insights & Strategy, Employer Branding Australia

There are some brilliant insights and a must read for those who are trying to get the very best from their employees.–Dr. Peter W. Beven, Director QUTeX Open Professional Education, GSB, QUT

Warp speed change is now a constant. What do organizations need to do to maximize the potential of their employees in the new reality?

The tired cliche that employees are our greatest asset is false. It’s unlocking the potential of employees that’s the greatest asset.

THE FUTURE OF HUMAN RESOURCES confronts the conventional employment practices of selecting, inducting, developing, rewarding, and exiting employees. This book is a comprehensive blueprint for HR professionals to make the necessary changes to accommodate a new mentality.

Thirteen traditional practices are challenged, and fresh, practical pathways offered. Dr. Tim Baker, according to leadership guru, Marshall Goldsmith, is “one of today’s most influential HR experts.” He offers new insights about what’s still considered conventional wisdom, such as employee induction, the job description, and succession planning.

THE FUTURE OF HUMAN RESOURCES provides you with a roadmap to navigate the post-Covid world of work.
