The Tenth Edition of Human Resource Management continues to present both the theoretical and practical aspects of HRM. The theoretical material is presented throughout the textbook and highlighted via a marginal glossary. The practical aspects of HRM are presented through lively and pedagogically-effective examples woven throughout the text and in the end-of-chapter materials. This edition reflects the challenges of diversity, technology and globalization in the business world and how these forces impact the HRM function within organizations.
# Updated coverage of HR issues, including executive compensation and e-recruitment.
# Over 30 new HRM in Action examples.
# Lists of key terms with page references have been added to the end of every chapter.
# Coverage reflects trends in the business world and the HRM function within organizations and addresses specifically the challenges of a more diverse, more technologically-sophisticated, and more complex workplace. Changing government and legal requirements, increased awareness for security issues, new information systems, downsizing, demands for a more skilled workforce, and intensifying global competition are just a few of the factors that are addressed in the new edition.
# 'On the Job' appendices follow selected chapters and offer practical examples in such areas as job descriptions and resumes.
# End-of-chapter materials include: 'Summary of Learning Objectives' which provides a synopsis and review of the key learning objectives within each chapter; 'Review Questions' to provide students with an opportunity to review chapter concepts through questions developed to test students' memory of key issues and concepts in each chapter; 'Discussion Questions' that provide an opportunity for students to apply critical thinking skills to in-depth questions; 'Incidents' (two per chapter) that act as minicases for students to analyze and dissect chapter concepts and applications via real-life scenarios; 'Exercises' that are experiential in nature and can be done in class or as homework and are designed to illustrate major points made in the chapter.
# The clear, concise writing style combined with numerous illustrations and applications makes the text very readable for students.
