Overview

Managing Human Resources, 10e is completely updated to include the latest laws and reglations governing HR; covers contemporary issues such as HR strategy, employee rights, violence in the workplace, building community, reengineering, and teambuilding to establish a clear understanding of working relationships within today's companies; contains controversial topics such as diversity and ethics, integrated throughout and presented in a balanced manner; and offers solid pedagogy, with the Integrated Learning System tying the entire text and ancillary package together.

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.

    Good Book content but horrible online study guides.

    The textbook has good information regarding Human Resources but beware of the accompanying website. If you are using this for Distance Learning classes you many be required to log onto the Boulander website to listen to video lessons. The website is very hard to navigate. If you are using a used textbook, you have to pay for an access code. This is not obvious, and the website denies access without telling you that you have to pay for the service. Very confusing. Then, once on the website, over half the students in my class were having trouble downloading the lessons. If you are using a wireless modem or an older laptop, you may not be able to properly download. Laptop system requirements were not posted on the website. Some of the practice questions from the website are strange. The student has to guess what the test maker wants, rather than be tested on a student's knowledge. The way this class has been administrated by Boulander is in complete contrast to the content of Human Resources.
