    The How-To of Human Resources

    Let¿s face it ¿ who wants to spend time worrying about human resource issues when you have a business to run? The hiring, the firing, the laws . . . it gives me a headache just typing it! In our litigious society an employer has to think not just twice, but 3 or 4 times before making a statement, sending out a memo, or creating a new policy. This book goes a long way to taking the fear out of the personnel arena and giving the business owner the necessary tools to hire the best prospect and retain that employee. Holihan begins with explaining what human resource management actually is and walks you through creating personnel policies and handbooks. Creating job descriptions, organizational charts, recruiting, interviewing, hiring, and training are all covered in detail with additional sources for more research provided. Then Holihan gets to the truly sticky issues: communicating with employees evaluating and motivating performance discrimination and fair treatment and the ever-nasty discipline and termination procedures. Nobody wants to fire someone, it causes as much emotional stress for the owner as it does for the employee. Holihan takes the pain out of the act by stating in plain language what the costs are for NOT firing an employee for poor performance. If you are a business-owner with 100 employees or less, this is the book for you. It is easy to read, the steps are clearly outlined and explained, and enough additional resources are provided that you should never want for employment information again!

So what if youâ¿¿re not a small business owner? This book is still a valuable resource. Learn tricks for being prepared for interviews: what questions will the employer ask?

You have questions here are the answers. Holihan breaks this complicated subject down into easily digestible chapters, and her conversational writing style wonâ¿¿t leave you scratching your head and reaching for the closest dictionary. â¿¿365 Answersâ¿ is written in easy-to-read large type, and, for those innately difficult to understand concepts, the book contains a useful glossary of terms.

    A Must Have For Small Business Owners

    Although the title is a bit daunting in its length, the actual book is quite a useful volume of information. Broken into seventeen easy to digest, relatively short chapters, this book tells a great deal about what you need to know as a small business owner. What I liked best about this book is that many key points are made into bulleted lists. It is best to get an overview of the topic through lists such as this, instead of having to wade through paragraph after paragraph trying to find the key points. Some lists included are items which should be included in a personnel policy, how to assure you have a smooth interview, and documents to provide at job termination. Additional bonuses to this book are the exceptional Classified Case Studies: directly from the experts pages. With short, one to two-page spreads, these pages give a quick overview of how real businesses are dealing with their employees. Throughout the book you will find business laws described in easy to understand language, instead of legal jargon. With over 300 questions answered, this title will be a useful addition to any employer¿s library. I would give this title 5 out of 5 stars for usefulness and ease of reading.
