When Pay Plans Go Wrong: Managing Compliance Issues Before the Audit

This book tackles a difficult subject and not only makes it understandable but also useful and actionable to compensation and HR generalists alike. Author Jude Sotherlund discusses many methodologies used to audit base pay and make recommendations as to how to do so properly. She explains the systematic approach to conducting an internal audit, devotes a chapter to broadbanding and takes a look at model employers and best compensation practices.

Leading with Your Heart

Leading with Your Heart explores inspired leadership across an organization and the use of a positive moral compass to drive a new way of thinking and integrating our nation's rich diversity. Cari Dominguez and Judith Sotherlund use the term "ganas" (gah-nas) to capture this concept. Ganas speaks to one's inner desire to succeed. Motivation drives performance. Inspired motivation drives individuals to connect their day-to-day practices with their guiding beliefs, and to do the right things in the face of obstacles. Leading with Your Heart presents anecdotes of inspired inclusion in the workplace, not necessarily to establish best practices models for replication, but to affirm the lasting values of integrity and fairness that result from leading with the heart.
HR professionals will find Leading with Your Heart instrumental in bridging the gap between the idealized expectations of the C-suite and the pressing realities of needing to get the job done at the line manager and local levels.

Performance Management
A Collection of Articles from WorldatWork

While employers may be experiencing fewer attraction and retention troubles due to the most recent economic crisis, there is a strong business case for integrating rewards and talent management programs. Organizations that apply an integrated approach in this area and across all stages of the employment life cycle have an advantage in attracting, engaging and retaining the talent they need to succeed in their markets — and financially outperform their peers.
And while almost any form of performance management can succeed (or fail), the key to success is how well the program is implemented and executed. In this collection of articles from WorldatWork, thought leaders provide ideas and concepts on how to create performance management programs that work. An effective performance management program is HR’s "best opportunity to influence positive business results, and for that reason should be a priority for the entire human resources team."
