An Entrepreneur’s Guide to Managing Human Capital

By Scholley Bubenik

So, you’ve taken all the risks, stepped out on the ledge, and started a business. Now, it’s prospering and you need more people to help you build it. You don’t have millions of dollars to hire a VP of HR, but you still need to have all the answers and wisdom that a highly paid professional would bring.

Enter Scholley Bubenik, and her book, People Power: An Entrepreneur’s Guide to Managing Human Capital (October 1, 2018). Bubenik is not only an expert with decades of experience, she is an entrepreneur herself and fully understands the challenges of hiring people and building an engaged workforce.

Her message is both informative and encouraging. She lays out in detail the necessary HR strategies in a simple and easy-to-follow way. There are also exercises and forms to guide the reader through the process. “My hope was to take the fear and trepidation out of the HR function for entrepreneurs,” she says. “The whole idea of hiring and managing a team can be daunting, but I don’t believe that it has to be.”

People Power addresses the issues that all growing businesses face regarding human capital, including:

  • Recruiting   
  • Compensation
  • The Hiring Process
  • Training and Development  
  • Employee Retention and Engagement  
  • Managing Risk  

Whether the reader is a business owner or just starting their career in management or human resources, the information in this book provides much more than the basics of HR and will give every entrepreneur the tools and knowledge to effectively plan strategically and win.
