I would listen to it several times, as it includes very useful tips and advice.
Recruitment questions were very deep and important
Shelia has done wonderful job
first chapters are very informative
Looking for more books from the authors
I can usually listen to any audiobook, but this one is super hard to listen to. It just lists steps and skips over the why. Seems like baseline knowledge. Written and read like a grocery list.
Just be in paper. There are a lot of checklists, repetition and boring. This is a lot of common sense and if you do not already know a lot of this then you should not be in HR or a Manager.
Laws are specific to the jurisdiction you are operating your business in, therefore it is good practice to consult legal counsel do not go by what a general book says.
A leadership book
A lot of the checklists and I would have made them available as reference material.
Common sense. Respect your employees, pay well and have open communication. Do not promote or create a work environment of two faced or stab in the back. Be consistent.
To attract and retain top talent, pay enough to live decently in the area your business is in.
I think managers are better off focusing on being good managers and have the print version on hand but focus on self development.
And above all, do not have the work environment threatening they employees will constantly get the ax. That is not going to make your employees feel good rather it will promote anxiety and resentment and you will have a high turnover.
Respect your employees and have healthy work boundaries and I also recommend Miss Manners Minds Your Business. That book has a lot of helpful information for businesses.
