Overview

Human Resource Management introduces the tools and skills needed to be a successful HR manager, while exploring the impact of social media and other technologies. The text provides you with an introduction to the daily tools and skills you'll need -- in both human resources and business in general. With a practical approach, you will explore the evolution of the field, highlighting the introduction of revolutionary new technologies.

The 16th Edition focuses on the positive impacts of technology on the HR field. For example, the ability to vet potential employees on the internet has shifted more HR responsibilities to managers. This leaves HR departments with more time to carry out strategic, long-term endeavors for boosting employee performance and engagement. With a heavy focus on emerging industry trends, the text prepares you with everything you need to succeed in HR Management.
