The Second Edition of Human Resource Management offers undergraduate students a practical introduction to the function and responsibilities of human resource management within any companyfrom staffing the organization, enhancing motivation and employee performance, to overseeing compensation and benefits. The text has been designed primarily for business majors who will rely on HR during the course of their careers as general managers. DeNisi and Griffin focus on traditional topics, allowing students to clearly understand the impact of effective human resource management on companies and employees. To prepare students for contemporary HR challenges, the authors offer up-to-date coverage of several key topics. The text features a separate chapter on the organizational environment of HR activities (Chapter 2), the global environment of human resources (Chapter 4), the management of diversity (Chapter 16), and the new relationships between employees and organizations (Chapter 17). In addition, integrated discussions of diversity, globalism, ethics, technology, and other timely issues appear throughout the text. Planning and job analysis are now introduced earlier (Chapter 2) to establish a stronger strategic framework for discussing HR in subsequent chapters. Finally, the text now covers both job analysis and job enrichment in Chapter 5 to provide a unified look at how jobs can be studied and changed. New! Point/Counterpoint boxes, now in every chapter, focus on areas of controversy within human resource management and encourage students to interpret each position or argument. New! Two lists, Key Points for Future HR Managers and Key Points for Future General Managers, appear at the end of every chapter to draw a clear connection between chapter topics and two separate career paths. New! A new addition to the text, Chapter 8, Rightsizing, covers issues dealing with employment-at-will, discipline and termination, layoffs, and employee retention strategies. Human Resources Legal Briefs sections call attention to important legal issues that are either the focus of significant public interest or likely to dominate HR practice in the future. Similarly, Human Resources Tech Talk inserts look at how different innovations have affected HR practices. Other inserts include Human Resources Around the Globe and Human Resources in the Twenty-First Century. Chapter-opening cases focus on a recent event, issue, or trend that illustrates key concepts. A more detailed case appears at the end of the chapter with questions to promote class discussion. Chapter Summary and Review & Discussion questions help students review, test, and apply what they have learned. In addition, Ethical Dilemmas in Human Resource Management scenarios ask students to discuss how most managers would respond in a given situation. Building Human Resource Management Skills exercises require students to apply the information from the chapter to a specific problem. In the Human Resource Internet Exercise, students research specific companies on the Web to examine how organizations actually approach different issues covered in the chapter.
