In The Human Value of the Enterprise Andrew Mayo confronts the challenge to today's managers-finding a way to measure (and account for) a business's most crucial resource, its human value.
About the Author
Andrew Mayo spent 30 years in large international organisations in a variety of roles, latterly in HR and HR Development. He is Professor of Human Capital Management at Middlesex University Business School, and has been rated by Human Resources magazine consistently amongst the 'top thinkers' in HR. His first book, Managing Careers, became the standard UK textbook for organisational career management. The second, The Power of Learning, (jointly with Elizabeth Lank) was rated by Carol Kennedy of The Director 'as the best book around on the learning organisation'. In 1998 he published Creating a Training and Development Strategy, which was rewritten in a new edition in 2004 and is a standard CIPD textbook on the subject. He regards his most important previous work as The Human Value of the Enterprise (Nicholas Brealey, 2001) which remains in demand as a seminal work in valuing people and their contribution in organisations.

Good overview of many HR tools and techniques
30 December 2011 - Published on Amazon.com
I am no subject matter expert for what this book covers, which is HR management / personnel management / people management. However, in my job I often need to work closely with Heads of HR and CEOs. This book sets out clearly and consistently and without too much padding and puff many key concepts used in this area, which means I can contribute more to my clients. I recommend it highly for this purpose. I do wish the author would get a move on and make it available on Kindle -- he is a professor at London Business School, an institution which charges hefty fees for telling managers about how important technology is and how we must all adopt it, and then dinosaurs like this fellow flatly refuse to practice what their institution preaches.
Packed with Knowledge!

In The Human Value of Enterprise, Andrew Mayo proposes a quantitative methodology that attempts to bring the rigors of financial accounting to human resources management. Mayo sets forth a series of formulas designed to reveal how much each individual is contributing to the overall value that any company creates for its stakeholders. Of course, these formulas are limited by the subjective process through which managers assign values to the activities and results of their employees. That said, the procedures that Mayo outlines can be used as the foundation for a fairly rigorous system of human resource cost accounting that we from getAbstract recommend to all professionals in the field.
