Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The cover states that the book is ideal for HR training managers and directors, and that line managers, team leaders and internal communications managers will also find it of great benefit. I do not always concur with the hyperbole that often appears on book covers. In this case, I do.'
Dr Kenneth Lysons FInstAM Chief Examiner

Press coverage of previous reports on this theme by the same author:
'These findings should set alarm bells ringing in the boardrooms'
The Times, March 1996

'As Roffey Park's Holbeche has discovered, it is increasingly the people with the qualifications to succeed inside the organization who are moving outside, leaving the cynics, the traumatised survivors and the clock-watchers behind.'
Management Today, November 1995

'This latest research shows clearly that when an organization decides to delayer itself potential effects on individual employees must form part of the equation.'
Personnel Today, January 1995
