Review:

"I like the idea of taking the students to the next level by applying the concepts through critical thinking. I was impressed with the authors’ presentation and style. I think the text reads easily for a student that is new to the discipline and it is not overly simplified for experienced students that are refreshing their skills. I am a visual learner and I like the charts and diagrams presented. The exercises provided give practical insight into everyday situations.” (Roxanne Roske 2011-10-28)

“Beautiful layout invites reader interest?superb graphics, learning aids, self-assessments; excellent theory and research bases; excellent readability, with thorough explanation of terms and concepts; superior chapter on a difficult topic of performance appraisal.” (Larry K. Bright 2011-10-28)

"The text is designed to work in sync with SHRM’s curriculum, and it has some nice pedagogical tools included within and at the end of every chapter.” (Howard R. Stanger 2011-10-28)

“[The authors] have done a great job of offering a variety of activities and setup. Also, there is so much practical application of materials that corporate HR uses. This is a really good chapter.” (Debbie L. Mackey 2011-10-28)

“Excellent organization of the content, I like the use of the questions format for major headings . . . nice writing style.” (Frederick Tesch 2011-10-28)

“I was most impressed with the ease of following the points the authors were making. The way they use headings and sub-headings in covering the information, and break the material into informational blocks, will be very helpful to the student.” (Gary R. Murray 2011-10-28)

“Love the self-assessments! Few texts actually attempt to ‘help’ the students use what they learn!” (Carol Spector 2011-10-28)

“I like the structure and the approach of this textbook. It is more hands-on and will allow me to take my present course to the next level.” (Brenda Smith 2011-10-28)

“[Chapter 8] is definitely one of the most creative, pragmatic chapters on performance appraisal of all the textbooks written.” (Jack N. Kondrasuk 2011-10-28)

“I really like this text. It has solid content, it is very readable, and succinct.” (Barbara A. Crockett 2011-10-28)

Human Resource Management: Functions, Applications, Skill Development is a core text for introductory HRM courses in departments of Management, Business, and secondarily, Education and Psychology (I/O Psych).

Planned Approach and Features Interactive presentation of material: Text material presents HRM concepts and functions followed by application material so that students can break up the reading while applying the concepts and getting feedback. The boxed items will not promote a passive reading of an example; they will engage the student to come up with an answer. Self-assessments within the chapters will also allow students to check their understanding as they go. This is especially helpful for the online learner.The text is broken into ochunkso so that the professor can present a concept with a short lecture, followed by interactive applications and skill-building exercises (discussed below and throughout the prospectus).Each section of the chapter has major heading with concepts with application material within that section. A note indicates when review questions, communications skills, and skill building exercises can be conducted, which are found at the end of the chapter. Applications: The text includes 6 types of applications. Skill Activities: The text includes 4 types of skill activities. Teamwork/Collaboration in Class: The applications can be discussed in groups, and the skill-building exercises are both individual and group based. Teamwork can be part of the course. The IM will include a discussion of how permanent teams can be used, along with a peer evaluation form to help eliminate the free-rider problem.Visual Learning: The text will be visual, with many exhibits, the IM includes PowerPoint slides, and there are video links available to adopters of HRM.oHow-too Orientation: The text will include behavior model steps for handling common HRM issues (i.e. coaching and discipline, and the exercises give clear instructions. The IM gives recommendations for exercises, with suggested times for each step.Assessment: Accrediting associations want assurance of learning and outcomes assessment.This text will be the first HRM package to include a test bank that covers application and skills questions to assess outcomes. The IM also includes an Introduction that discusses all the activities possible use and grading. Bookseller Inventory # BZV9781412992428
