The Rise of HR: Wisdom From 73 Thought Leaders (HR Certification Institute, 2015) is a free e-book collection of essays highlighting critical issues facing the profession. Contributions reflect perspectives spanning the higher education, corporate, nonprofit, government, and private enterprise sectors and cover topics of strategy, organization, talent supply and optimization, analytics, governance, and professionalism. As noted in the book's introduction, approximately one third of issues discussed by boards today are HR in nature—from talent review and succession planning, to executive compensation, governance, ethics, and culture.
