JOSH BERSIN

Josh Bersin, leading HR analyst and founder of Bersin Academy, is convinced that politics will not fix society’s ills. “It’s today’s me-first culture that has to change. We need a clear understanding of why we, as individuals, have to help society work.” Robert Putnam’s The Upswing gave him just that, Bersin says. “It’s an ideal companion book. I loved it.” To see how Putnam decodes both moral and political issues, we recommend you read our summary of The Upswing.
