    Introduction to Human Resources: Applying Concepts and Practical Applications is a comprehensive guide to the functions of human resource management. This student-friendly text concisely covers all critical aspects of the profession while avoiding unnecessary material.

    Students are first introduced to human resource law, policy, and ethics. Subsequent chapters target real-world human resource applications beginning with job analysis and descriptions, recruitment, and the selection process including testing, interviewing, and hiring. The material also addresses compensation, performance appraisal, and motivation. Later chapters are devoted to benefits, workplace safety, and the role of unions. The book concludes with essential information and how to successfully complete an employee termination and an exploration of the future of human resources.

    Each chapter features learning outcomes, a summary to highlight key concepts, and a relevant case study with accompanying questions. Introduction to Human Resources is designed to serve as a foundational textbook on the subject. The material can also be applied to classes on management principles.

    Sarah A. Daniel Felmet holds an M.B.A. with a specialization in marketing, as well as a master's degree in public administration, and is currently a Ph.D. candidate in public policy and administration at Walden University. She has extensive management experience in both the public and private sectors and has served as an adjunct faculty member at several institutions. Professor Daniel Felmet now teaches full time at Richland College in Dallas, where her courses include marketing, management, and supervision and human resource management.
