“The Differentiated Workforce does a marvelous job helping leaders and HR professionals focus on building capabilities more than discrete HR practices. This is the direction for helping deliver strategy and for shaping the HR profession. The book is thoughtful, well written, timely, and insightful.”

— Dave Ulrich, Professor, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan. Partner, the RBL Group

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
