This best-selling text presents a very practical, comprehensive treatment of the human resources function as it operates from a central office or school district level. The text uses a management approach that is organized around the processes and procedures necessary for implementing effective human resources administration. Treated in separate chapters are the eight essential dimensions of the human resources function: human resource planning, recruitment, selection, placement and induction, staff development, appraisal, rewarding, and collective negotiations.
