This fourth edition of "Human Resources and Personnel Management" continues to provide comprehensive coverage of the essential topics in a readable and understandable format. The book features numerous vignettes based on actual organizations and events that are designed to bring conceptual material to life. The coverage of legal issues has been thoroughly revised to reflect the significant developments of the early 90s. This new edition is further distinguished by the inclusion of vital contemporary issues such as cultural diversity, ethics, globalization and the impact of human resource management on corporate strategy. The book takes a progressive approach by linking contributions of human resources to corporate strategy; features a wealth of real-life vignettes that provide applications-orientated examples; expands upon the increased globalization of organizations; and offers explanations of the human resource department's role in dealing with employees.
