Foundations in Management Beyond the HR Department
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 Fourth Edition has been updated with practical personnel techniques, real company examples, and new material on business sustainability-and each chapter now touches on important recurring themes in management, including employee engagement tactics, small/global business management, employment law features, and positive employee relations.
