Summary

New Features

  • Chapter 1 includes extensive coverage of how globalization, technology, E-commerce, and demographic changes, are influencing HR management practices as well as the strategic responses of organizations.
  • Chapter 3 explores the legal context of employment decisions. The revision discusses recent regulatory developments and case law which affects employment decisions, for example, with respect to sexual harassment, overqualified job applicants, "English-only" rules, and preferential selection.
  • Chapter 6, Recruiting, has been completely updated, beginning with the chapter-opening vignette, to reflect new strategies that companies and job seekers are using to find each other. New research findings on the effectiveness of online job search, diversity-oriented recruiting, and factors that affect recruitment success, inform the student, as does a new section on hiring management systems.
  • Chapter 8, on workplace training, includes expanded treatment of team training, a new company example, "Foundation Week at the Container Store," and the latest findings on executive coaching.
  • Managing careers is the focus of Chapter 10, and it includes an updated chapter-opening vignette, "Self-Reliance: Key to Career Management," as well as updated company examples and research findings on dual-career couples, mentoring, relocation, older workers, retirement, and alternative patterns of quitting.
  • Chapter 12 presents benefits in the context of total compensation. It describes the latest strategies companies are using to control health-care costs, along with updated information about Social Security, and cash-balance pension plans. A new ethical dilemma, "What to Do with Bad News," stimulates lively discussion in the classroom.
  • Chapter 14 addresses procedural justice and ethics. There is an entirely new section on Sarbanes-Oxley Act protections for whistleblowers, plus a completely revised and updated treatment of privacy issues in the workplace.
  • Chapter 15, on job safety and health, includes the very latest research and recommendations for using employee assistance programs and company-based health-promotion activities, and for dealing with violence at work and substance abuse.
  • The author provides examples of effective HRM practices in small businesses in almost every chapter, not just from large Fortune 500 Companies. The revision features dozens of new company examples to illustrate current practices, updated legal findings from each area, and the very latest research findings in every chapter.
