Each week we’ll feature great reads on the latest HR topics.

Here’s a handful that piqued our interest this week:

The first includes tips on building a customer-centric culture. The second takes a look at the Amazon-Whole Foods merger and why culture is a make-or-break factor in mergers and acquisitions.
  2. Breaking Down Boundaries in the C-Suite HR Executive provides a deep dive on the increasingly strategic role of HR leaders. The article explores the concept of a “boundaryless CHRO” with examples from Adobe, Accenture, and Honeywell International.
  3. The Role of HR in Successful Business Transformation — Touching on a similar theme, HR Technologist explores HR’s role in achieving strategic business goals. The author outlines the key skills HR leaders must develop to lead transformation and ensure its long-term sustainability.
