9780324152654: Managing Human Resources Through Strategic Partnerships

Managing Human Resources Through Strategic Partnerships, 8e allows students to capture the excitement of this dynamic field in an interactive and tightly integrated text. Managing human resources effectively requires mutual understanding and collaboration among HR professionals, managers, and all other employees. In this edition, the authors encourage such collaboration by clearly presenting principles for effectively managing human resources and also explaining the different HR roles and responsibilities of the three primary HR partners. Together, these HR partners can develop and implement an approach to human resource management that satisfies the needs of the organization as well as the multiple external stakeholders who ultimately determine its success.

Review:

Over the years, Jackson and Schuler have displayed a unique ability to integrate contemporary and accepted material on a variety of business disciplines and to show a clear and defined link between those disciplines and HRM. In today's quickly changing world, it is becoming more and more clear that employees are an organization's greatest asset, and in many ways Jackson and Schuler demonstrate why that is so.

This text is written at a high enough level for graduate students and does a good job linking strategic management and HR's role. The Triad building blocks are excellent. There are other good HR texts, but they are not really written for graduate students.

I use this text because I believe it to be the most complete text written at a level that is suitable for an undergraduate introductory course.

This is the most up-to-date text with a strategic HR bent and has application materials at the end of the chapters. I also had to have a textbook that would appeal to line managers who where my audience--not HR professionals.
