Your workplace may be packed with great people, handpicked and well trained. But what should they be doing to drive the organization forward? How can you channel all that talent and effort into the most profitable areas? And how can you strategize for the future when so many changes are happening now?

Human resources professionals struggle for answers. If you can form a clear vision of how to effectively manage your human capital, you can set your organization on a sustainable path—and bring HR to the forefront of the strategic planning process. But continue with the status quo, and inefficiency and irrelevancy can drag the entire enterprise down.

High-Impact Human Capital Strategy is a sweeping analysis of 12 forces impacting people and organizations, with insights for developing a robust human capital strategic plan that addresses each. From changing workforce demographics and skills shortages to the persistent energy crisis and globalization, the book’s far-reaching overview, step-by-step guidelines, and examples help you provide the direction your organization needs:

Set the optimal investment level the organization should spend on human capital.

• Align your HR programs to business needs.

• Manage critical talent in your organization, and ensure key people remain.

• Create a results-oriented performance and innovation culture.

• Decide how, when, and where work should be performed, and engage employees and cement their commitment.

• Safeguard employees’ well being with cost-effective healthcare and wellness programs.

• Build a diverse workforce that reflects demographic changes, including multi-generational employees, changing immigrate profiles, and women’s ascent into leadership positions.

• Use technology to unleash employees’ creativity and drive productivity, while minimizing the distractions and vulnerabilities.

• Pinpoint how globalization affects your business and your people, and help employees devise ways to offset its impact.

• Counter environmental and energy challenges by engaging employees in sustainability efforts and preparing for adverse impacts in the future.

• Develop leaders who thrive in challenging global environments.

• Measure your programs using analytics and big data, and use results to make improvements.

No resource is as valuable, or expensive, as your people. By learning to provide high-level strategic direction, you not only improve how people work and what they focus their efforts on achieving, but also deliver the bottom-line results your organization needs to thrive in the future.

Jack J. Phillips, Ph.D., and Patricia Pulliam Phillips, Ph.D., are Chairman and President/CEO, respectively, of ROI Institute. They are active consultants, prolific speakers, and co-authors of many HR books and articles.
