In this edition, technology has been integrated into the discussion of each major HRM function where technology has had a profound impact. For example: considerable space is devoted to the online revolution in personnel recruitment and selection and the role of the Internet and HR software in HR functions.
The authors have increased emphasis on globalization and international business to match its increased importance to the HRM function. An entire chapter (2) is now devoted to global issues and the authors maintain discussion of international issues as they relate to each functional HR issue.
The authors have added new Critical Thinking Exercises, which cover some of the most important issues of the day, including the development of an anti-terrorism policy and procedure and whether a company should adopt a binding arbitration agreement for all employees.
Based on reviewer feedback, the writing of the text has simplified and smoother transitions have been developed between chapters.
Based on course trends, the authors have placed an increased emphasis on the implications of HRM issues and policies for general managers who apply HRM policy but who also have the most to do with the success or failure of HRM. In addition, the authors pay more attention to the implications of HRM for small business where all HRM functions may rest with personnel also performing a myriad of other small business activities with no formal HRM training.
This edition continues with the dual goals of providing theoretical and experiential approaches to the study of human resource management.
Exercises and discussion questions which require the student to consider equal employment opportunity laws in particular HRM contexts can still be found throughout the text.
The authors continue to offer discussion and experiential exercises on the controversial issues of today, including affirmative action programs and sexual harassment policies.
