Blog: Recommended reading on HR, culture, recognition and engagement


Recognise This! – To truly lead others, we must never stop learning.

Recently, I received an email from Sudan asking me for my recommendations on top 3 books in HR. I thought this was too good of an opportunity to pass up and open up to you, my readers, for a bit of crowdsourcing as well.
Below are some of favorite books in four categories. I’m lucky in that we have a bit of an informal book club at Globoforce where we share around books, which ultimately end up in our library. These have crossed my desk sometime in the last few years, and I’ve found them quite valuable. What others would you recommend?
Company Culture
Recognition and Rewards
Employee Engagement
I’ve reviewed or written about most of these on Recognize This! over the years. A quick search in the blog will take you to my perspective on them. What books would you recommend?
