“If you’re languishing in your role as an HR professional, read this little gem of a book. Marc clearly shows how cloud-based HR technology can bring credibility, strategic thinking, value, vision, and passion to an organization, giving HR the opportunity to transform the way it delivers information, advice, and service.”

“Heroic HR gets to the heart of what makes HR great: the ability to shape business strategy and business success by leveraging technology to improve performance. Don’t let the size of this book fool you – it is chock full of great ideas and helpful approaches. His tool kit for working with HR technology vendors is spot on. This would be a great guide for an entire HR department to use in setting its vision and mission. Well done, Marc!”

“Marc Miller’s Heroic HR is brimming with thoughtful and thought provoking content. Its rapid-fire messages are accessible and relevant for those new to the field, as well as those who have lived the evolution of human resources into the systems age. Heroic HR is written in a style that will encourage you to read it quickly, but that’s a mistake. This content needs to be considered, pondered and explored.”
~ Kevin Carlson, Ph.D., Virginia Tech Pamplin College of Business
“Structured around a new strategic model – the Arch of HR Triumph – Heroic HR is replete with ideas and information to help you transform your HR organization into a strategically oriented HR function. Especially important are the components that make up the foundation of the Arch – HR Technology. And don’t miss the “Lessons Learned” that Marc has gathered from organizations that have embarked on achieving a more ‘Heroic HR’ initiative.”
