This text takes a strategic approach to human resources and integrates it with other functional areas such as marketing, finance, operations, and accounting, reflecting the issues challenging companies in today's marketplace. Its macro approach links human resource strategies to corporate strategies. Writing from a "what can human resources do for you" perspective, the authors demonstrate how human resources fits into the organizational big picture. This text is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate courses in personnel and human resource management.

Key Features

  • The text focuses on downsizing, restructuring, international expansion, re-engineering, TQM, and a number of other strategic issues of the 1990s. A unique international chapter appears early in the text and international examples are integrated throughout.
  • Chapters 1 and 2 capture the essence of the strategic approach.
  • Three unique chapters cover the topics of quality, diversity, and ethics.
  • The text employs practical, real-world examples and covers issues currently faced by managers and human resources managers, drawing from the authors' extensive corporate experience.
  • A large number of original cases provide excellent support to the text. Longer, more in-depth cases appear at the end of the text.

New Features

  • All examples and data have been thoroughly updated, while additional coverage has been added to international issues and other increasingly important topics.
  • The first four chapters have been condensed into three, bringing students quickly to the heart of human resource management.
  • New or revised cases are featured at the end of each chapter and at the end of the book.
  • The chapter on benefits now details health-care reform issues.
  • A more global - rather than nuts and bolts - perspective makes the text more interesting for non-majors.
  • The two labor chapters have been combined into one.
  • Chapter concepts have been rearranged in most chapters to reflect HRM industry practices.
