Human Resource Management, 12e by Ivancevich and Konopaske takes a managerial orientation; that is it takes the position that HRM is relevant to managers in every unit, project, or team. Managers are constantly faced with HRM issues, problems, and decision-making and the text's primary goal is to show how each manager must be a human resource problem solver and diagnostician. This book pays attention to the application of HRM approaches in "real" organizational settings and situations. Realism, understanding, and critical thinking were important in the revision. Students and faculty alike have identified readability and relevance as key strengths of the text. The Twelfth Edition provides a book that stimulates ideas and keeps all users up-to-date on HRM thinking and practice.

    A human resources perpective on employee harmony

    It has been seen over time and again,the attitude employees exhibit cluminate the focus and attention given them by management.This may be so primarily because of the motivational factors that may be absence,in the dealing with matters relating to employee.Focus is the order of good job description and the setting of good industrial climate for the fostering of equal employee share in the success of the company high and the low in the company low or down time.In particular the Caribbean has certain key practises that constitute normal pattern of behavior that may not necessarily be good for the development of the individual,organization and soceity as a whole.The problem is that the caribbean sordly lack leaders with a vision and insight into the way ahead dealing with human resource related matters,for example lack of judgement or the pronouncement of on some on the occurance of dissatifyied employees within the vast cross section of private and public sector organization and companies.Within the private sector the leadership of the capitalist still seems to be the order of the day.However,there seems to be little thought of the lower level employees within the company,since the presence of the union is a no show.The caribbean is still practicing poor human resource relation and the thought of the multitude of business owners are to make a profit at minium cost and forget the employee in the process.It is the practise of business owners to share their stratgic goals and company mission and vision and not spent time evaluating the performance management of the organization and scope of development and for the employees and where there is training needs and developmental opportunities for growth and development of the workforce.
