Prepare future managers with an understanding of HR skills

Managing Human Resources gives students a solid business understanding of human resource (HR) management skills.  It makes human resources relevant to anyone who has to deal with HR issues in the workplace, even those who do not hold the title of manager. Covering new and emerging trends, customer orientation, ethics, and global issues affecting HR, the text gives students a realistic view of the subject as it is actually practiced in business organizations. In addition to thoroughly updating all of the materials, the 9th Edition also introduces a new theme of employability -- referring to HR skills that make students more attractive in the labor market. Coverage of these hot topics, which are foremost in the minds of students, prepares them to be more employable managers, supervisors, and team leaders with valuable HR knowledge.
