By embracing the seventh edition of Managing Human Resources: A Partnership Perspective, 7e students capture the excitement of this dynamic field in an interactive and tightly integrated text. Managing human resources effectively requires mutual understanding and collaboration among HR professionals, managers, and all other employees. In this edition, the authors encourage such collaboration by clearly presenting principles for effectively managing human resources and also explaining the different HR roles and responsibilities of the three primary HR partners. Together, these HR partners can develop and implement an approach to human resource management that satisfies the needs of the organization as well as the multiple external stakeholders who ultimately determine its success.
