Review:

"I have used different editions of this book for the past 8 years. This remains the only text in the market that offers a comprehensive source of everything and anything to do with Human Resource Management cases, vignettes and skill builders. Further, what appeals to me the most is the sheer variety of choices for each topic. One can choose from a comprehensive/integrative case that challenges students to analyze information from a variety of perspectives and encourages them to generate solutions that capture an integrated approach to HRM. One has a choice of shorter cases called 'incidents" that succinctly capture a key issue or a theme. These shorter cases and incidents have been updated each time to reflect the current trends in HR - from safety and violence at work, to freedom of speech, illegal immigration and so on. Then there are several hands-on practical exercises and skill-builders that my students simply love because they get to actually get their hands dirty and engage in a particular HR activity within the safety of a classroom environment or at home. Many of my students actually keep the book after the class is over and use these skill-builders and exercises to train and/or coach their co-workers and subordinates. Because, this book does such a great job in keeping up with the current HR trends and translating them into "teachable moments" - it offers an excellent and valuable teaching tool that appeals to both instructors and students. One final comment - given that many of the cases and incidents in the book are grounded in some forms of a "real life" case, it makes the material so much more powerful and authentic to work with." - Romila Singh, PhD, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

"I consistently use the Cases, Incidents, and Skill Builders. What I like about these is that they allow the students to apply the Human Resource Management information they have learned. Completing the Cases, Incidents, and Skill Builders provides students the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge, comprehension, and application of the material. Hence, their mastery of the material." - Dr. Tina C. Elacqua, Le Tourneau University

"The text is perfect for our course given that we want to focus on all areas of HR. The text is excellent in providing students practical and real-world cases, skill builders, etc. in which they may apply and develop their knowledge. I have found these to be very much aligned to situations they may actually encounter in the workplace." - Stacy Rogers, SPHR, CPRW, Sullivan University
