Overview

This market-leading text is ideal for both the two-year and four-year college introductory Human Resource Management course, and is a useful choice in courses with non-majors as well as HR majors. This text may be used in either quarter or semester programs. This course is typically an elective for two-year schools and business majors at four-year programs.

Managing Human Resources covers all aspects of human resource management and its impact on both individuals and organizations. The text builds on a foundation of research and theory but also provides a practical framework focusing on critical issues and successful practices. Users and reviewers of the text praise its pleasant writing style, user-friendly design, and highly effective examples that provide meaningful insight into the world of HR. In fact, over 500 different organizations from a variety of settings are used as examples to illustrate key points and make the connection to HR practice. Important issues and critical trends are spotlighted in each chapter and reflected in the comprehensive and chapter ending cases included in the text. Managing Human Resources' balance of theory and practice, hands-on activities, applications, and examples helps students develop the competencies to understand and help their organizations create a sustainable competitive advantage through people.

    Left me in a bind

    I ordered the book only to have my order canceled by the seller. My class starts in a few days, now I'm left without a book.
