Overview

Staffing Organizations: Contemporary Practice and Theory, the new 3rd edition of a classic in the field, shows how organizations of all sizes can use effective staffing procedures as a source of sustained competitive advantage. Practically, the book shows how to choose, develop, and administer effective staffing procedures, including conducting job analyses, defining and measuring job performance, identifying predictors of performance that are both valid and legally defensible, and using this information to make sound hiring decisions. All three authors are active practitioners and recommendations based on their experiences are interwoven throughout the chapters. The authors are also grounded in a scientific, conceptual perspective that informs what they say and do in the staffing area. They review cutting-edge theory and research in diverse areas of importance to the practice of staffing, and identify scientific advances as well as areas that should be informed by additional research. Examples of such cutting-edge issues include: multilevel staffing models linking individual, group, and organizational levels, comprehensive consideration of diversity and cross-cultural challenges, the opportunities and challenges of the use of information technology in staffing, the legal, professional, and ethical challenges facing staffing practitioners, modern statistical approaches (e.g., structural equation modeling, item response theory, hierarchical linear modeling), integrated models of staffing predictors and frameworks for understanding predictor and criterion spaces. Each chapter contains real-world examples and illustrations, a discussion of best practices, practical recommendations, anddirections for future research. In doing so, Staffing Organizations: Contemporary Practice and Theory is a modern version of a genuine classic.
