In the Second Edition, important new chapters have been added on two topics that are a challenge for human resources administrators at all educational levels: Performance appraisals and policy/regulation development. Three new case studies in each chapter showcase realistic situations as they occur in the workplace. In addition, new charts, graphs, tables, and figures add to the text's visual appeal. All traditional topics in human resources are addressed, along with the most current concerns of the field. Special care is taken throughout the text to provide a strong human resources perspective: A realization that the human element is central to an organization's progress, and that the human resources function encompasses utilization, development, and the teaching environment. While solidly backed by research, information is presented in a way that students will find accessible...even enjoyable.About the Author:
