Описание: Finding a job used to be simple. You'd show up at an office and ask for an application. A friend would mention a job in their department. Or you'd see an ad in a newspaper and send in your cover letter. Maybe you'd call the company a week later to check in, but the basic approach was easy. And once you got a job, you would stay--often for decades.
Now . . . well, it's complicated. If you want to have a shot at a good job, you need to have a robust profile on LinkdIn. And an enticing personal brand. Or something like that--contemporary how-to books tend to offer contradictory advice. But they agree on one thing: in today's economy, you can't just be an employee looking to get hired--you have to market yourself as a business, one that can help another business achieve its goals.
That's a radical transformation in how we think about work and employment, says Ilana Gershon. And with Down and Out in the New Economy, she digs deep into that change and what it means, not just for job seekers, but for businesses and our very culture. In telling her story, Gershon covers all parts of the employment spectrum: she interviews hiring managers about how they assess candidates; attends personal branding seminars; talks with managers at companies around the United States to suss out regional differences--like how Silicon Valley firms look askance at the lengthier employment tenures of applicants from the Midwest. And she finds that not everything has changed: though the technological trappings may be glitzier, in a lot of cases, who you know remains more important than what you know.
Throughout, Gershon keeps her eye on bigger questions, interested not in what lessons job-seekers can take--though there are plenty of those here--but on what it means to consider yourself a business. What does that blurring of personal and vocational lives do to our sense of our selves, the economy, our communities? Though it's often dressed up in the language of liberation, is this approach actually disempowering workers at the expense of corporations?
Rich in the voices of people deeply involved with all parts of the employment process, Down and Out in the New Economy offers a snapshot of the quest for work today--and a pointed analysis of its larger meaning.

Описание: Managing People Across Cultures maps out the value of people issues in the organizations of today. It challenges us to ask key questions such as How did Human Resource Management (HRM) come to be and what genuine need is there for it? and What should the future direction of HRM be? Fons Trompenaars and Charles Hampden-Turner spell out their vision for what HRM must do to stay relevant to businesses today. Their view is that people management must embrace the values of entrepreneurship i.e. agility, flexibility and innovation to ensure its continued effectiveness. The authors also argue that workplaces have to become customized to grow and learn as its employees push the boundaries of learning and discovery. Functional barriers also need to be torn down. You will discover that the rightful place for HRM is at the fountainhead of any business; the place where ideas are first generated and mobilized for action.

Описание: Praise for MAKE YOUR PEOPLE BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR PRODUCTS "We are without doubt in an increasingly challenging environment of skills and talent shortfalls. Recruiting, developing, engaging, and retaining people or seeking out alternative ways to access skills and capabilities must be seen as a critical strategic agenda for any business. This is the challenge and the agenda which this book seeks to highlight and to address, with a great mix of theory and case studies to guide and to define our way forwards." —Peter Cheese, Chief Executive, CIPD "Building on real-world practice and learning, this book provides unique insights on how your firm can achieve a global competitive advantage in the 'war for talents'. The 'inclusive/selective' approach and the 'Sunao' mind suggested by the authors, together with their tips on how to build and grow a skilled, engaged and motivated workforce make it a must-read book for any executive who cares about attracting, growing and retaining the best possible talents in a fast-changing competitive environment." —Dr Dominique Turpin, President of IMD, The Nestlé Professor "The founder of Panasonic, Konosuke Matsushita (KM), was quoted as saying 'a business is people' and went on to say 'a company must first learn to produce people before it can produce good products and fulfil its mission'. I am delighted that the authors have selected some words from the writings of KM for the title of their book. This book will help talent professionals to become more globally minded in the design and implementation of their talent management policies." —Yukio Shohtoku, Formerly Executive Vice-President in charge of overseas trade and investments, Panasonic Corporation

Описание: This book is about people who operate, maintain, design, research, and manage complex systems, ranging from air traffic control systems, process control plants and manufacturing facilities to industrial enterprises, government agencies and universities. The focus is on the nature of the work these types of people perform, as well as the human abilities and limitations that usually enable and sometimes hinder their work. In particular, this book addresses how to best enhance abilities and overcome limitations, as well as foster acceptance of the means to these ends. This book is also about serendipity and how unforeseen connections and distinctions enable innovative approaches to problems as well as solution concepts. The serendipitous connections and distinctions discussed here stem from perspectives that cut across domains and disciplines, and sometimes cultures. This enables, for example, using understanding of the operations of library networks to develop concepts for maintaining aircraft engines. The key, by the way, is the networked nature of relationships among system elements in both domains.

Описание: The worldwide financial crash and the ensuing recession have coincided with other significant long term changes for the Western Economies of Europe and the USA, especially the growing strength of newly developed economies, demographic and technological change, institutional crises and political uncertainty. The interconnected nature of businesses and societies mean the competitive landscape is being transformed, and new economic pressures and opportunities are producing new business models, a rebalancing of economies, and a new HRM. The application of new technology to the processes and systems of people management is spreading, in a world where competitive advantage is increasingly about how smart the management processes are, and how well people are managed. This text is the first book to analyse the way these contextual pressures are producing a game change in the human resource function of management. For anyone who has an HR role or is a line manager, or a student of management, and for those who teach, research or consult in the field, this book encapsulates these critically important trends and what they mean for managing people in the 21st Century.
