"An exciting new resource for students and instructors at all levels in Human Resource Management. This text relates the concepts of Human Resource Management to current HR situations and uses interactive online videos to reinforce chapter learning objectives. A must text for use in the experiential approach to Human Resource Management."
"I like the dynamic structure of the book, I like how it deals with current topics, and I like the fact that it uses real-life examples and organizations.... I like the overall approach taken by the author. I also like that this text seems to be 'fresh' in its approach to some difficult and sensitive areas of HRM."
"I would seriously consider adopting this book for the following reasons: (1) Focus on the importance of using a situational approach (flexibility and adaptability) regarding application of HR concepts. (2) Focus on the direct relationship between HR and business strategy attainment. (3) Integration of diversity, ethics, competitive advantage, and the global environment with HR throughout the chapters reviewed. The author did a great job of the describing and defining key concepts and issues. Real world examples were provided that assist students in understanding the underlying theory."
