“The Differentiated Workforce makes an outstanding contribution by demonstrating the power of strategic workforce management linked to organizational strategy. The value of the book goes far beyond theory and models by providing tools, process steps and practical examples of how to achieve competitive advantage through targeted and disproportionate investments in talent. I highly recommend this book for line leaders and human resource professionals.”— Marcia J. Avedon, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Human Resources and Communications, Ingersoll Rand
According to Becker, Huselid, & Beatty, many companies fall into the trap of spending too much time and money on low performers in nonstrategic roles, while high performers in strategic roles aren't getting the necessary resources, development opportunities, or rewards.
In The Differentiated Workforce, the authors expand on their previous books – The HR Scorecard and The Workforce Scorecard – and recommend that you manage your workforce like a portfolio – with disproportionate investments in the jobs that create the most wealth.
Based on two decades of academic research and experience working with hundreds of companies and executives – The Differentiated Workforce will give you the tools to truly transform your talent into strategic impact.

- Create a differentiated workforce that competitors can’t easily copy
- Differentiate the truly strategic capabilities in your company
- Identify your wealth-creating "A" positions
- Articulate the roles of HR and line managers
