"Human Resource Management, 11/e, International Edition" explains how successful companies manage human resources in order to compete effectively in a dynamic, global environment. Long known and respected as a tightly integrated, clear, higher-level text, "Human Resource Management, 11/e, International Edition" presents strong organizing themes: teams, diversity, global issues, corporate social responsibility/ethics/sustainability, and metrics/analytics. These themes are highlighted in interesting boxed features throughout the eleventh edition. The text also follows an organizational structure that emphasizes the HR Triad (employee, line manager, and HR manager) with the understanding that effective human resource management requires mutual understanding and collaboration among HR professionals, managers, and all other employees. New to the eleventh edition is an emphasis on preparation for the PHR/SPHR certification exam. Because organizations differ from each other in so many ways - including their locations, competitive strategies, products and services, and corporate cultures - these experienced authors use many different companies to illustrate how employers address the challenge of managing human resources effectively. This new edition includes examples of companies in many different industries, sizes, and countries. The authors selected these organizations because they successfully combine a respect for established principles of human resource management with a willingness to experiment and try new approaches, allowing them to succeed year after year.
