Sally Seldens groundbreaking book moves far beyond describing best practices and offers the context in which innovative practices have been implemented. She details how agencies are creating performance-aligned workforces by adopting systems and policies that are driven by their strategic missions.This book covers core topics of personnel courses-- including hiring, training, retention, performance, and recognition-- but also includes integrated coverage on measuring success through assessment. Further helping readers grasp how HCM works, the book uses original data from the Government Performance Project and incorporates many comparative examples across a wide range of states, plus federal and municipal agencies. Unlike anything else available, Human Capital fills a critical gap for both students and public personnel professionals.
