Human Resource Management provides students with the daily tools and skills they need to function as successful managers—in both human resources and business in general. With a practical approach, the text
explores the evolution of the ed, highlighting the introduction of revolutionary new technologies and social media platforms such as LinkedIn and cloud computing.
The fifteenth edition focuses on the positive impacts technology has had on the HR ed. The ability to vet potential employees on the Internet shifts more HR responsibilities to managers, leaving HR departments with more time to carry out strategic, long-term endeavors for boosting employee performance and engagement. With a heavy focus on emerging industry trends, the text prepares students with everything they need to be successful managers and HR personnel in the 21st century.
Features Trends Shaping HR features in each chapter connect students with emerging technologies, social media sources and sciences that help HR departments vet and pursue new talent, align company and employee goals and more.
The Strategic Context features are integrated with chapter openers to show how actual HR managers adjusted their actions to achieve company goals, relating new skills and technologies to the real world.
Chapters 1 and 3 introduce the concepts and techniques of human resource strategy.
The Hotel Paris Case is a continuing case study that appears in each chapter starting with chapter 3.
It helps students connect with strategic human resource management by showing how a hotel company’s HR director creates policies and procedures that improve employee morale and therefore its services, to achieve business goals.
Chapter 10: Managing Careers and Retention focuses more on career management practices and employee retention techniques than previous editions based on the addition of a new Employee
Engagement Guide for Managers feature in most chapters.
Examples, legislation and cases relevant in the Indian context have been added throughout the book; for example, Chapter 2: Employment Laws in India and the US has been updated to include legislation important for Indian readers.
