Management of Human Resources: The Essentials, Fifth Canadian Edition, recognizes that human resources are now among the most important organizational assets, and thus brings both human resources and non-human resources readers into a current and comprehensive discussion about human resources today. The term human resources refers to the employee–employer relationship in the workplace. The knowledge, skills, assets, and competencies employees bring to their work help the organization achieve its objectives; these resources provide a source of competitive advantage for organizations in a hyper-competitive, global environment.
