Employers Focused on People as Economy Starts to Improve
New book offers organizations human capital advice to make the most of current employees, measure results, and plan for their hiring futures.
Somerville, NJ – Hiring is on the rise, and employers are having difficulty finding job applicants with the right skills in many industries, according to a recent research from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). With the impending skills gap due to mass Baby Boomer retirements and an influx of military veterans needing jobs, employers are focused on human capital.
In the new book The ACE Advantage: How Smart Companies Unleash Talent for Optimal Performance, published by SHRM,Dr. William Schiemann, CEO of Metrus Group provides expert advice on making the current workforce more productive, getting the most out of employees, developing leaders, and measuring employee performance.
The ACE Advantage is based on extensive national surveys conducted over many years, interviews with 75 management experts and thought leaders and almost 25 years of consulting experience.
The book addresses:
“The lost opportunities that come from having a workforce that is not aligned, capable and engaged—the ACE model that Bill [Schiemann] advances—become very costly, and the ability to tap this People Equity becomes arguably the biggest source of long-term comparative advantage,” said Peter Cappelli,the George W. Taylor Professor of Management at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, the director of Wharton’s Center for Human Resources, and a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research.
The ACE Advantage provides an analytical model, backed by significant quantitative research, that connects human performance management to predictable bottom line results.
