|About the book|| |
As competitors strive to win the war for talent, effective human resource management is necessary to gain true competitive advantage in the marketplace. Three challenges companies face are sustainability, technology, and globalization. Human Resource Management 7th Edition brings these challenges to life by highlighting real-world examples pertaining to these issues and relating it to the concepts within the chapter. This best-selling McGraw-Hill/Irwin Human Resource Management title provides students with the technical background needed to be a knowledgeable consumer of human resource (HR) products and services, to manage HR effectively, or to be a successful HR professional. While clearly strategic in nature, the text also emphasizes how managers can more effectively acquire, develop, compensate, and manage the internal and external environment that relates to the management of human resources.

New and Updated Chapter Openers, End of Chapter Cases, and Cases from the pages of Business Week- All introduce the student to issues related to HRMs role in the current economic reality (recession) and other current chapter topics such as downsizing, GMs reorganization to survive, company’s emphasis on learning, reducing labor costs, reviewing incentive programs and benefits to increase their motivational value and focus on cost-containment. In 14 of 16 chapters, opening cases present a real business problem or issue that provides background for the issues discussed in the chapter. At the end of each chapter a feature called “A Look Back”, provides questions that challenge students to address the human resource issues discussed in the chapter opening cases. In Chapter 2, Strategic Human Resource Management, “A Look Back”, asks students to consider how GM should consider changing the way it manages its workforce and works with the employee unions as a result of its transformation and new business model.

Newly Enhanced End of Chapter Cases Online! In the Look Back end-of-chapter section for six chapters, a case icon has been added next to certain sections indicating that a pertinent case is available through the OLC website.

Mosca of Monmouth University and focus on specific topics such as workplace bullying, sexual harassment, and performance evaluation.
