"Fundamentals of Human Resource Management," by Noe, Hollenbeck, Gerhart and Wright is specifically written to provide a complete introduction to human resource management. While it doesn' t cover the depths of human resource management theory, the book is rich with examples and engages students through application. Fundamentals differs from the hardback textbook by the same author team. Instead of a higher level of theory that' s geared towards the HRM majors, this book focuses on the uses of human resources for the general business manager. Issues such as strategy are reduced to give a greater focus on how human resources management is used in the everyday work environment. It provides students with the background necessary to manage human resources effectively and to be able to distinguish good from poor human resource management practices and how they impact business. Instructors are provided with a robust ancillary package that includes a comprehensive instructor' s manual, test bank, PowerPoint presentation and a complete Online Learning Center to make course preparation easy.Noe, Raymond Andrew is the author of 'Fundamentals of Human Resource Management ', published 2005 under ISBN 9780073257945 and ISBN 007325794X.
