    Salient Features

    Getting to the point-A Concise Overview for All Managers. The focus of this text is to make the information relevant to students of management-not just those who will specialize in human resources.

    Making the connection-Realism. Each chapter of this text touches on, or provides examples of, how managers strategically use HR practices and technology in today's business environment.

    Dozens of new topics. Reliability, validity, generalizability, utility, person-job fit, bias, using the standard deviation rule in equal employment compliance, retaliation, job satisfaction and withdrawal, managing voluntary turnover, management's willingness to take a strike, cross training, and job hazard analysis.

    A new boxed feature, HR as a Profit Center, in most chapters presents actual examples of how human resource managers added measurable value to their companies.

    Expanded treatment of Career Management in Chapter 6 (Performance Management, Appraisals, and Careers) and of the ADDIE training process in Chapter 5 (Training and Developing Employees).

    A new end-of-book module on Practical HR Tools for Managers, focusing on nuts-and- bolts human resource management tools, guidelines, and systems all managers can use, for instance, to comply with EEOC interview question guidelines.
