Fundamentals of Human Resources Management supports human resources training for all students of management -- not just HR managers. The text presents a wide range of HR topics within a single semester of material, and a wealth of functional examples and applications. Fundamentals is also the first text of its kind to make talent management processes a core study.

This 5th Edition has been updated with practical personnel techniques, real company examples, and new material on business sustainability. Each chapter touches on important recurring themes in management, including employee engagement tactics, small/global business management, employment law features, and positive employee relations, to help students become stronger and more effective managers.

Features
  • Building Your Management Skills features show how to apply what you’ve learned, such as how to conduct effective employment interviews.
  • Know Your Employment Law features show the practical implications of the employment laws that apply to each chapter’s topics, such as recruitment.
  • HR Tools for Line Managers and Small Businesses show how managers, supervisors, and small businesses use practical HR tools such as work sampling tests to improve performance.
  • HR in Practice features show how managers and companies such as Zappos actually implement their HR practices.
  • HR as a Profit Center features show how to use HR methods to cut costs and improve performance.
  • New - Discussion highlights on the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM’s) functional knowledge areas, with Knowledge Base icons, call-outs, and an SHRM knowledge overview and group activity questions in the accompanying MyLab Management.
  • New - Topics on Digital and Social Media HR Pros and Cons highlight the benefits and challenges that employers face in proper usage, when recruiting and retaining staff members.
  • Sustainability and HRM. In a world where sea levels are rising, glaciers are crumbling, and an increasing number of people view financial inequity as outrageous, more and more people say that businesses can't just measure "performance" in terms of maximizing profits. This edition covers material on sustainability and the roles of HRM (human resource management) in implementing a company’s sustainability efforts.
  • Diversity Counts provide practical insights for managing a diverse workforce, including gender bias in selection decisions, bias in performance appraisal, and hidden gender bias in some bonus plans.
  • Strategic Human Resource Management covers the HR policies and practices that produce the employee skills and behaviors that a company needs to improve its performance.
  • End-of-Chapter Exercises help readers concentrate on the chapter’s content and then test their understanding when the chapter is complete.
  • The Talent Management Process is at the very core of the material. It’s not enough for students to simply think about personnel planning, recruiting, selecting, training, appraising, and compensating as isolated topics -- they need to see how these topics work together for the overall benefit of the company.
