    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.
    The Second Edition will be published Summer 2020. ISBN: 978-1-5165-9842-7
