Recently released in April 2015 after a collaborative effort across the breadth of human resource professionals, The Rise of HR Wisdom: from 73 Thought Leaders is an anthology of perspectives highlighting the key themes confronting business and talent professionals in supporting the growing trend of people as a primary driver of an organization’s success.

“The intent of this collection is to help HR professionals seize the new, emerging opportunities occurring in talent development and to navigate the challenges of an ever-changing landscape,” said Prof. Ulrich. “The Conference Board CEO Challenge 2014 survey ranked human capital issues as the number one challenge facing business leaders globally. As organizational leaders increasingly recognize the value of recruiting and retaining strong talent, HR professionals’ importance is likewise growing. Along with that new opportunity, though, comes greater scrutiny of HR professionals than ever to respond and perform at the highest levels of excellence.”

The Rise of HR was led by HR leaders Dave Ulrich, Professor of Business, University of Michigan, Partner and Co-founder, The RBL Group; Bill Schiemann, CEO Metrus Group and Libby Sartain, Business Advisor. This was sponsored and underwritten by the HR Certification Institute.
