9780324568394: Managing Human Resources

MANAGING HUMAN RESOURCES THROUGH STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS, Tenth Edition, explains how successful companies manage human resources in order to compete effectively in a dynamic, global environment. Long known and respected as a tightly integrated, clear, higher-level text, MANAGING HUMAN RESOURCES THROUGH STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS, Tenth Edition, presents strong organizing themes: strategy, teams, diversity, global issues, and change. These themes are highlighted in interesting boxed features throughout the tenth edition. The text also follows an organizational structure that emphasizes the HR Triad (employee, line manager, HR manager) with the understanding that effective human resource management requires mutual understanding and collaboration among HR professionals, managers, and all other employees. Because organizations differ from each other in so many ways--including their locations, competitive strategies, products and services, and corporate cultures--these experienced authors use many different companies to illustrate how employers address the challenge of managing human resources effectively. Examples of companies in many different industries include Southwest Airlines, Deere & Company, Wegmans, Lincoln Electric, McDonalds, TRW, Steelcase, Google, Novartis, Johnson & Johnson, SAS, Outback Steakhouses, United States Postal Service, UPS, IBM, 3M, Alberto Culver Weyerhaeuser, The Ritz-Carlton, and many others. The authors selected these organizations because they successfully combine a respect for established principles of human resource management with a willingness to experiment and try new approaches, allowing them to succeed year after year.

Review:


The book appears very comprehensive and thorough. I like the updates, particularly with regard to issues with social media and modern technology. I also like that the book seems to be starting to emphasize HR analyticsEL I like the use of course packets, but they are a lot of work and effort. I also would like something that dealt with terms and big issues before I covered it in class, so I am reconsidering my use of course packets.
--Michael C. Sturman, Cornell University


"It is a well-prepared and content-rich textbook. It addresses the current state of HR--including the strategic need for HR, important role of HR in the organization, and the influences both internal and external which drive HR practice. This edition recognizes the changing nature of HR and the external factors which influence and impact HR practice."
--Kevin J. Jones, Indiana University


[The book] does a proper job of covering the whole HRM function. As to the proposed revisions and new "current issues" features, some are especially excellent...I do like that most of them reflect either qualitative improvements or trends that are truly broad and systematic, versus mere fads or narrowly applied.
--James M. Wilkerson, Charleston Southern University


"I have used the book for many years because of the integration of strategy and HR. It also provides students with an overview of the key areas within HR. It is challenging but accessible. I've been using it for years and will continue."--Mitchell Langbert, Brooklyn College School of Business
