“Living Next Door To HR”, title of this book, resonates with the sentiments expressed by Smokie, an English rock band, in their popular hit single “Living Next Door To Alice”. It goes something like this “…don’t know where she is gonna go, I assume she’s got her reasons but I just don’t wanna know, ‘cause for 24 years I have been living next door to Alice. 24 years just waiting for a chance to tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance……” The book lists several topics the author wanted to tell HR (Human Resources), in his 24 years of corporate career. HR could change (e.g. drop yearly appraisals). HR could help with (e.g. Horrible Bosses). HR could adopt (e.g. 4 day work week). HR could get involved in (e.g. Merger & Acquisition). HR must drive (e.g. change management). HR could get right (e.g. leadership versus managerial). HR must avoid (e.g. food chain over value chain). HR could additionally do (e.g. customer engagement). HR could enforce (e.g. bringing leaders to the shop floor). HR must renew (e.g. principles over rules). HR must practice (e.g. 3-box thinking). HR must work on (e.g. work-life balance). HR should prepare for (e.g. Start-Ups & Artificial Intelligence).
