Review: "Here is the definitive reference on human resources management and development. No other work can match the scope of data, quality of material, and up-to-date information found in these pages." "Completely revised to reflect the growth of the HRM/D function in the past decade, the Handbook is both an authoritative reference and a practical how-to guide. Covering 18 key topics in 102 chapters, it contains contributions from more than 100 experts (56 new to this edition) - a veritable roster of "Who's Who" in all areas of human resources management and development. Included are innovative concepts and strategies as well as time-tested principles and practices, creating a volume of rare balance and depth." "Professionals at all levels will find everything they need to know to manage and develop outstanding HRM/D departments and programs. Among the key areas covered are HR planning, budgeting, and cost control; recruitment and selection; employee and labor relations; communications, motivation, and performance appraisal; compensation and benefits; employee services; organization and management development; internal and external training programs; HRD systems design and evaluation; and marketing HR programs and services." "In addition, you'll find comprehensive and up-to-date guidance on such emerging topics as workforce diversity; total quality management; work and family programs; empowerment; accommodating and training workers with disabilities; self-directed team development; customer satisfaction training; and electronic media, desktop publishing, and management information systems." ""The Handbook was developed with today's global practitioners of human resources management and development in mind," notes editor William R. Tracey. "Authors were urged to keep the exposition simple and straightforward . . . to include both verbal and graphic illustrations to enhance reader understanding . . . and to write for a worldwide audience." They have splendidly achieved these goals, and the result is a volume you will consult for years to come - a resource that's sure to help all HRM/D professionals improve productivity, contribute to their organizations' strategic goals, and enrich their careers and their profession."--BOOK JACKET.
