Very timely

Very timely. It shed light on concerns I had within this field. Would definitely serve this as my manifesto. I won't be surprised that this book will certainly guide and develop its readers to be competent leaders.

Must have for HR leaders in the Philippines

As a compendium of best practices, The 50 shines. I was able to learn a lot from the HR leaders featured in the book, both in terms of individual subfields as well as big picture HR. For example, there is a lot of helpful advice across performance management, talent acquisition, employer branding, learning and development, culture-building, and so on. But I like how all of these specializations are discussed under the larger banner of making HR a more strategic, more transformational unit for the entire organization. This book should be helpful for any professional or leader in HR - or for that matter, any business leader - who wants to innovate their HR practices, and in so doing, their organization.
