* How do you recruit the best employees?
* How does a firm go about downsizing?
* How important is money relative to other factors?
* How and when should evaluations be conducted?
* How should stock options be structured to maximize incentives? How are training and turnover linked?
* Should you reward good performance or penalize bad performance?
In this new book, Personnel Economics for Managers, Professor Lazear answers these and many other personnel management questions. His unique approach, using economics to explore human resource topics, builds human resource systems as an entire structure with no one department independent of another. After reading this book, you will finally have a detailed analysis in a field that has traditionally lacked the resources to back up theories and statements.

From the Publisher:

Historically, human resource managers have had little analysis on which to base the things they say or do. Personnel for the specialist and general manager is the first to fill the void. Authored by one of the most respected members of the new generation of Labor Economists, the text adds rigor to human resource management by using economics to explore typical human resource topics. Accessible to all readers, an in-depth knowledge of economics is not required.

About the Author:

Edward P. Lazear, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution of War, Revolution and Peace since 1985, is also the Jack Steele Parker Professor of Human Resources, Management and Economics at Stanford University's Graduate School of Business. Current and founding editor of the Journal of Labor Economics, and past president of the Society of Labor Economists, Professor Lazear is the visionary leader in the field of human resource management.
