I’m not in HR but have been curious about neuroscience and what it is beginning to say about business. I was curious about this book so had a dip in and then found I just kept reading! The chapters on the importance of social connection and threat and reward have something to say that anyone in business needs to be aware of. And if you are in sales it really makes you think about how you approach the customer. Recommended for any business person who wants to be more successful.

My wife suggested I read this book - she thought it might be helpful given we are going through a big re-structure at work. Have to admit, I found it incredibly useful especially as I was able to dip in and out of the relevant chapters. Also found the brain basics section fascinating. Would definitely recommend!

Whilst there are an increasing number of very readable books written about neuroscience, which give interesting and informative accounts of how our brains work and the benefits of mindfulness and other techniques, Jan Hills has taken the evidence and applied 'so what does this mean for HR practices and beliefs'. It is a book you can read cover to cover and then dip in and out of it depending on what you need. It is full of suggestions and tips to approach different aspects of HR from, effective brain savvy leadership and employee engagement to the importance of having a fit and healthy workforce who get enough sleep. Much more than the normal 'how to do it' book, it based on the research and the evidence, and for those who wish to find out more, the reference section at the back should provide a few month's reading!

Brain Savvy HR should be compulsory reading for every HR professional. It is well written, researched and referenced. As a book it would serve well as an introduction to the latest neuroscience research and findings, but equally it will be of interest to the more knowledgeable reader due not only to the depth in which the subject is covered but the practical explanations and applications. The CORE model is particularly helpful.

In contrast to the other reviewers I did not find it an engaging read at all. Very useful in summarising a lot of business related material with some important messages for HR non-HR alike. Good as a starting point for more research but not a book I would reccommend.

In a world of lengthy business books and jargon-based trends, I found this a refeshing mix of new content and useful bite-sized sections. As other reviewers have said, the application goes broader than just HR and is written in a way that is easily referenced and practical to use. Recommended.
