Summary: Intended for business majors who are studying toward management positions in Human Resources, this text offers students a practical introduction to the functions and responsibilities of managers within an organization--including staffing, enhancing employee motivation and performance, overseeing compensation and benefits, and working with a diverse work force.

The Third Edition has been restructured to create a more concise, accessible text. The text continues
to offer complete coverage of core human resource management topics with an additional emphasis on how HR can provide competitive advantages in today's business world. Updated coverage of critical topics in HR management includes new chapters devoted to the changing relationships between employees and organizations, diversity, the global environment of human resources, and the organizational environment of human resources activities.
  • New! A Taking It to the Next Level feature considers HR issues from a strategic perspective. Engaging topics, such as contingent workers and contemporary social issues, are explored to expand upon core topics and to encourage class discussion.
  • Point/Counterpoint boxes in every chapter focus on issues of controversy within human resource management. Arguments "for" and "against" issues are addressed and "conclusion" sections provide opportunity for student interpretation.
  • Chapter-closing Key Points for Future HR Managers and Key Points for Future General Managers features relate chapter topics to the interest of non-HR majors and future HR managers, respectively.
  • Updated chapter-opening cases highlight recent events, issues, and trends that correspond to major themes in the chapter. Additional cases at the close of the chapter include questions to simulate discussion.
  • Chapter pedagogical features include Ethical Dilemmas in Human Resource Management, Building Human Resource Management Skills, Human Resources in the Twenty-first Century, Human Resources Legal Briefs, Human Resources Around the Globe, and The Lighter Side of HR.
