Join us for our March Book Discussion webcast, featuring authors Edward E. Lawler III, Distinguished Professor of Business and Director of the Center for Effective Organizations in the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California, and John W. Boudreau, Research Director at the Center and USC Marshall School of Business professor, as they discuss their new book, Effective Human Resource Management: A Global Analysis.

Based on a fifteen-year study, Effective Human Resource Management provides the first long-term analysis of its kind, focusing on Human Resource management in today's organizations. This book measures how Human Resource management is changing, paying particular attention to what creates a successful HR function, and identifying best practices in areas such as the design of the Human Resource organization and Human Resource metrics.

Brian Powers, Senior Fellow of Human Capital, The Conference Board, will moderate this important discussion for anyone interested in isolating the crucial strategies that an HR department should meet, along with the changes it needs to implement, in order to successfully prepare for the future demands of a global and dynamic labor market.

Audience: Human Capital professionals charged with strategic human resources, talent management, leadership development, strategic workforce planning, workforce readiness, diversity & inclusion, employee engagement or human capital analytics would benefit from this webcast.
