9781111533564: Human Resource Management

The focus of HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT is on developing students' personal and managerial skills by (1) Helping students understand the role of HR in organizational effectiveness as well as their personal career success; (2) Enabling students to understand how to flexibly apply the HR concepts that are appropriate for different problems or situations, and how HR both influences and is influenced by business strategy; and (3) Creating an understanding of the HR context by embedding the important concepts of ethics, diversity, competitive advantage, and the global context throughout the book. This highly readable book will help students understand how to use HR to hire, develop, motivate, and retain the right people and bring out the best in employees to execute the company's business strategy. It is intended for anyone who is or who might become a manager or an HR professional. By developing readers' competence and confidence in using important HR skills, this book will help anyone become a more effective manager through a better use of HR tools. Because most students learn more easily when they see the applicability of concepts to real life situations, HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT provides numerous current company examples throughout the book. A book-long integrated case supplemented with interactive online videos develops students' personal skills and gives them some experience in applying various HR concepts. The case and videos reinforce the relevance of the textbook material and make the content even more understandable.

Review:

"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."
