Review:

'It is increasingly clear that people are indeed at the heart of corporate strategy and it is through the energy, innovation and engagement of employees that companies succeed. However, what is less clear is the role that the HR function can play in supporting and framing the people agenda. This very useful and informative book brings the debate about the role of the HR function bang up to date. Drawing from a wide range of cases and research insights the authors show clearly what it takes for the HR function to win. Filled with strategic imperatives, issues for reflection and ideas for implementation it shows what it takes for the profession to be indeed at the centre of corporate strategy. A must have on every HR professional's bookshelf.' - Professor Lynda Gratton, London Business School, author of 'Hot Spots'

'Leading HR begins with research based in successful organizations and builds a thought provoking new paradigm for thinking about the changing roles and responsibilities of HR.' - Professor Patrick M. Wright, William J. Conaty GE Professor of Strategic Human Resources, Cornell University

'Changing business needs demand new responses from human resources. Human resource leaders who want to succeed and want to help their organizations succeed as well should read Leading HR to understand both the new, technical challenges that business faces and how they need human resources to help them.' - Professor Peter Cappelli, Director, Center for Human Resources, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

'The last two years have served to strengthen the role of and need for, high calibre HR professionals. Leading HR provides real insight into how HR needs to respond to today's world. It asks important questions about our agenda, relationships and capabilities in the context of business change and moves to answer them in a thoughtful and practical way.' - Jackie Orme, Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development
