Starting from the fundamental premise that the Human Resource function must espouse the cause of humans in the organisation and work towards their aggregate happiness, Visty Banaji uses the 50 years of experience he has in HR to introspect on what helps or hinders this mission. Angry Birds, Angrier Bees critiques the current state of affairs and suggests solutions for change. The columns span the gamut of HR, as do the remedies.
The relatively simple solutions (that may not be obvious) are in the earlier parts of the volume and the more radical measures, towards the end. Sandwiched between are columns where the bee really stings.
Angry Birds, Angrier Bees may not be comfortable to read, but it should be a uniquely rewarding experience for both HR practitioners and business leaders keen to prepare their organisations for future decades.
