Taking care of the most important resources

A newly published staff management “guide”

 

A theory inspired by our reality, and, as such, not rigid but, just like reality, comprising multiple aspects, all interconnected with each other – a complex theory for a complex reality. It cannot be otherwise when dealing with the theme of human resources in business and the best way to approach it. This is the concept underlying the book curated by Ernesto D’Amato (a manager with extensive corporate experience) and that includes a number of contributions written collaboratively, all sharing the same feature: all the authors are managers. More like corporate routine practice, then, than academic theory.

This approach explains the book’s title and subtitle: Il manuale delle risorse umane. Scritto da manager per futuri manager (A human resource manual. Written by managers for future managers). Indeed, this work really reads like a “manual” – it is not about abstract concepts, but rather embodies a concrete working tool presenting readers with a wide range of corporate cases and good HR practices. Its aim is to instigate a profitable learning process whereby, as said above, concrete examples give rise to theories, and not vice versa.

The book is structured into four sections, each corresponding to a major theme: corporate organisation in general terms, practices in human resource management, welfare, work discipline and trade union relations. It includes about 30 accounts by managers from major companies – from Sanofi to Trenord, from Generali to Ikea, from Bosch to Manpower, and many others. A little over 300 pages, this book collects real practical experiences, recollected and narrated by people who are really involved in the management of human resources, and also includes new solutions and strategies implemented by those who deal with genuine organisational issues every day. Moreover, together with some more traditional advice, this guide includes insights in topics such as research, talent enhancement, smart working, work safety, gender equality, and individual and work ethics, which nowadays are key to any business.

This is an excellent book curated by D’Amato, a great collection of guidelines that managers of today and tomorrow will find extremely useful when in need of some direction. To be read and reread.
