Summary

Applications in Human Resource Management was designed to provide a single source of cases, exercises, incidents, and skill builders to supplement the basic text in human resource management. These materials offer a fresh approach to the management student based on dynamic, real-life organizational events confronting both human resource managers and line managers who often implement personnel programs and policies. The text is based on realistic, current, issues confronting managers of human resources. Cases are based on "real" events that have taken place in organizations. The exercises and skill builders are intended to give students hands-on skills in the kinds of issues they may confront in HRM.
