Psychemedics Corporation Joins Accenture in Co-Sponsoring Innovative Chief Talent Officer Book

ACTON, Mass., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Psychemedics Corporation (Amex: PMD) was selected to participate in and co-sponsor Chief Talent Officer, an innovative new book sponsored by Accenture that addresses human resource management issues and the growing imperative for HR leaders to become chief talent officers.

Chief Talent Officer showcases chief executive officers and human resource executives who have demonstrated innovative approaches to leading and managing human capital to drive high performance. The publication also presents insights on human capital and workforce performance from key senior executives within Accenture's Human Performance practice, other industry leaders and academia. The book describes a number of proven practices for strategic leadership of the HR function that executives can implement in their organizations today.

Ultimately, organizations that are leaders in managing talent have executives at their helms that elevate human performance initiatives to a strategic corporate platform. These chief talent officers are the driving forces that transform their organizations' workforces.

Chief Talent Officer profiles a number of leaders from companies including Sara Lee Corporation, Unilever, Royal Dutch Shell, AstraZeneca and AT&T that have "cracked the code" and adopted highly effective human capital management philosophies and practices that drive competitive advantage. Through specially commissioned interviews with these leaders, the book reveals best practices for strategic leadership of the HR function and demonstrates how successful chief talent officers have brought the workforce to the forefront of the executive agendas for their organizations.

Raymond C. Kubacki, Chairman and CEO of Psychemedics, is one of the leaders profiled in the book. "We work with HR executives every day of the week on how to reduce risk, including making sure that human assets don't become a liability," he states in the book. "We have a very large number of clients who are consistently addressing employee risk factors and understand how important those decisions are in creating a top-notch workforce and a positive workplace environment."

"Chief Talent Officer is very innovative," said Kubacki. "As HR executives undertake the journey to chief talent officers, the top human resource executive needs to become the chief talent officer and many companies are already in that mode to drive performance. Full implementation of this successful platform, however, is also dependent upon the CEO recognizing the significance of this CTO position and clearly establishing its importance within the whole organization."

The book will be distributed to CEO's and top HR professionals within Accenture's client organizations in the US and internationally. Total distribution will be 20,000.
