How Access Codes Work


Human Resource Management provides you with an introduction to the daily tools and skills you'll need to function as a successful manager, either in HR or business in general. With a practical approach, the text explores the evolution of the field, highlighting the introduction of revolutionary new technologies and social media platforms.

The 16th Edition focuses on the positive impacts technology has had on HR. For example, the ability to vet potential employees on the internet has shifted more HR responsibilities to managers, leaving HR departments with more time to carry out strategic, long-term endeavors for boosting employee performance and engagement. With a heavy focus on emerging industry trends, the text prepares you with everything you'll need to be effective managers and HR personnel in the 21st century.
