If you’re a new or aspiring HR professional, my book, HR Beyond The Theory, will help you develop the practical skills to flourish in the workplace with confidence and competence. While other books can teach you the concepts and theory of HR and its practices, HR Beyond the Theory shares tried-and-tested practical advice and guidance on the skills you’ll need on a daily basis to help you develop your career as an HR professional.

In addition to practical advice on skill development and respective examples, this book also provides guidance on:

  • continuing your professional development as an HR professional
  • the different specialisms of HR from the perspective of those who work in them
  • how to approach the next steps in your career, and
  • tips on how to get your first HR role if you’re not already in one.

These skills saw me secure my first entry-level HR role without a degree or any HR qualifications, and go on to be a successful senior HR professional. This would not have been possible without the skills explored in this book.

The book is available in paperback and Kindle on Amazon!

Already bought the book? Thanks! I hope you got a lot out of it! If you haven’t already, it would be great if you could leave a review on Amazon and let other people know what you thought of it.

What others have said about the book:

But the reflections of popular blogger Charles Goff-Deakins turn out to be an unusual and informative take on the topic, giving a bird’s-eye view of the challenges new and aspiring HR professionals face and the types of questions – from how to use data to how to build your own network of contacts – that crop up in your first job”People Management magazine
