This authoritative text appeals to upper-level students, practicing managers, and HRM professionals who require a thorough grasp of the field's essential functional areas as well as emerging trends. Drawing on their extensive experience teaching abroad, the authors introduce international issues in the first chapter and provide ongoing discussion throughout the text. Instructors can discuss and revisit strategic HRM, ethics, utility (cost/benefit analysis), plus productivity and quality at any point.Coverage of improving competitiveness is now embedded in the chronological organization of the text, allowing students to follow the progression of individuals into, through, and out of the organization.Chapter-opening HR Perspectives are preliminary cases that introduce chapter concepts through real-world scenarios featuring Xilinx (Chapter 2), Dingo Doggie Bites (Chapter 7), United Airlines (Chapter 13), and Bonne Mare Group (Chapter 17).Updated end-of-chapter exercises and cases challenge students to put concepts into action and to make decisions like those faced by today's human resource managers.
