Check Out These Awesome Books About Human Resources

Human Resources encompasses a set of truly vital processes for your business, but the odd thing is that HR is often overlooked, particularly by smaller businesses. You might think that if you have a great idea and a great product, you are set and ready to carve your space in your market niche, but driving a business and making any product or service successful is a herculean task, let alone if you embark on this journey without a great team behind your back! HR is not only about finding the right people to work with and bring an influx of talent into your own company, but also about turning these talented minds into an amazing team and form common goals. The name “Human Resources” is pretty revelatory in itself. This list of 5 engaging, clever and thought-provoking books will finally help you seize your most precious business resources: the humans that are a part of your business!

  1. Never Eat Alone, Keith Ferrazzi
    • This particular book is very informal, but don’t let the friendly and discursive tone fool you: “Never Eat Alone” is a goldmine of sound business advice, which explores several areas of HR management, starting from the important concept that your business is made of people, and people have needs, feelings, priorities and goals. Any successful business should address the above things and make them work in the favor of the business.
  2. Managing Human Resources, Scott A. Snell and George W. Bohlander

This book will take you from the Alfa to the Omega of HR, and you might find yourself discovering aspects of human resources that you never even considered before reading this book
  3. HR Strategic Project Management SPOMP, Leon M. Hielkema
    • This particular publication is almost like an extended tutorial: it is easy to understand, hands-on and very in-depth on many issues, but in a way that you do not need to be particularly business savvy to be able to understand.
  4.  Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, 50Minutes.Com
    • This book is particularly interesting, because it takes an in-depth look not only at HR, but at the psychology behind it, revealing how needs and the rewards of achieving these needs will influence the power of your business and the productivity of your team
