Transformational HR Reviews

Perry is one of those rare individuals whose deep knowledge of transformational HR sits within a rich and compassionate understanding of human possibility. In the face of an increasingly complex world, this book provides a precious roadmap for those business leaders seeking to build resilience and drive change. * Nathalie Nahai, Author Business Unusual, Host of The Hive Podcast *
Ensuring that the workplace was somewhere where people could bring their best selves, achieve great work and have a rewarding experience has been a mission of mine for quite some time but I was not getting the traction I needed. Enter Perry and Transformational HR. Using Perry's words as encouragement, inspiration and, on occasions, instruction, has allowed me to put all those thoughts and plans in place in a way which really gains traction, and quickly. Modern people professionals need to move at pace and this helps provide the acceleration. * Gail Hatfield, People and Resources Director, Energy Systems Catapult *
Should come with a highlighter! The most annotated, and post it note covered HR book I have ever read (and actually enjoyed!) At a time in my career when I'd lost faith in the profession, Perry's book reignited my passion for HR and all that could be achieved through true collaboration and innovation. Transformational HR is accessible to everyone whether you have years of experience or are just starting out in your career. An absolute must-read. * Lucy Dodd, Head of People UK - FDM Group *
There are many books on HR and until now there was only one by Perry Timms. So much of the world of work has changed since the first edition was published in 2018 so it is very fitting that the revised edition reflects the critical role that HR as a profession has embraced and stepped into. This updated second edition is an essential read for todays' progressive HR practitioner to truly be heard and to add value in the organizations they are there to serve and support, but also challenge to do better in an ever-evolving landscape post 2020. * Shakil Butt, Founder HR Hero for Hire and former HR & OD Director, Islamic Relief *
Perry remains the formative thinker of our time on the human-centred organization of our working lives. He weaves his passion for a better world of work for everyone through the creation of actionable approaches supported by exceptionally researched evidence. His visionary ideas have emerged through several years of tumult in our world to reveal themselves to be as relevant as ever. * Neil Usher, Author, The Elemental Workplace and Elemental Change, Chief Workplace & Change Strategist @ GoSpace AI *
HR Transformation is no easy task, but you'll find no better guide than Perry Timms. He's long been pushing the boundaries of what HR can, and must, do to elevate our field, our companies, and each other. The second edition of Transformational HR takes his vision for HR at our best and recalibrates it for the current times we face beyond the events of 2020. A book blending practical application and visionary thinking, Perry yet again shows why he's the transformational guide our industry needs today - and tomorrow. A must-read for HR practitioners with an eye on the future. * Lars Schmidt, Author, Redefining HR and Founder of the Amplify and the Redefining HR Accelerator *
In this timely update of a classic text, Perry Timms highlights the need for HR professionals to become, and think of themselves as, engineers of people-led organizations. In this respect, this book should be considered the default manual. Filled with practical and accessible ideas, case studies and research, Transformational HR enables any and every HR professional to build, fine-tune and maintain a first-class, business focused, HR service * Rob Baker, Founder and Chief Positive Deviant of Tailored Thinking and author of Personalization at Work. *
Perry hits the nail on the head as he argues for greater coherence of HR thinking and activity to the business model and strategy. Many of Perry's methods for a transformed HR are less fixed, and more dynamic to the value-adding services customers need from HR. What makes Perry's work disruptive is humility; he urges people professionals to look and act outside-in; sensing demand, being proactive, and developing the mindset and ability to continuously adapt in both what and how the function delivers value. * Chris Furnell, Business Design Expert, PA Consulting *
Flourishing. Energized. Future focused. Transformative. Perry Timms takes transformational HR into a new galaxy with his thought leadership and adaptive thinking for the new age of HR. This book truly reflects the work he does on the ground with his clients and is grounded in real-life experiences that brings this powerful topic to life. I am proud to be an HR professional in his shadow. * Megan Phelps, FCIPD, Director of OD, Clear Channel *
I have long thought of Perry as an activist for purposeful, insightful and heartfelt business, so to see a second edition include up to the minute, laser focused and relevant thinking on how we make business better through the power of humans is no surprise. I am extremely proud to endorse and celebrate the release of this second edition of Transformational HR. * C-J Green, Co-Founder and Executive Director, BraveGoose *
