PRESCRIBED TEXT FOR HRM330 AT CSU, SEMESTER 2 2011
Make human resources work for you. STRATEGIC HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT shows you how through its unique system of concept integration. Most human resources textbooks give you the theories without showing you the connections to real life. This textbook lets you see both sides of human resources: the theory and the application. That way, you will not only get a great grade in class, you will be on your way to success after college as well.
