9780071378833: The Human Capital Edge: 25 People Management Practices Your Company Must Implement (or Avoid) to Maximize Shareholder Value

Global HR consulting firm Watson Wyatt has conducted a large body of research on 30 different human capital management practices showing, for the first time, how these practices can raise or lower the stock price of a company-and by how much. This research, which has been cited in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and the New York Times, is the foundation of The Human Capital Edge, and brings a new level of sophistication and measurement-based precision to the too-often fuzzy world of management books.
