Beyond HR

Boudreau and Ramstad describe a new describe a new decision science, which they call talentship, which is intended to help organizations hire and retain talent rather than just planning and budgeting for new personnel. It asks questions about where existing talent is within the organization, how that talent is rewarded, and whether changing the strategic goals of the organization would require the addition of new talent. Using examples from major companies, the authors demonstrate how human resource managers can extend their influence by thinking strategically about hiring decisions. They bring these examples together with research on organizational strategy and economics to propose a new role for human resources departments in organizations as they look toward the future.
