Modern human resources: technology, social media, and management

Human Resource Management provides students with an introduction to the daily tools and skills they’ll need to function as successful managers -- in both human resources and business in general. With a practical approach, the text explores the evolution of the field, highlighting the introduction of revolutionary new technologies and social media platforms. The 16th Edition focuses on the positive impacts technology has had on the HR field. For example, the ability to vet potential employees on the internet has shifted more HR responsibilities to managers, leaving 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 students with everything they need to be successful managers and HR personnel in the 21st century.
