Human Resource Management
Laura Portolese Dias
In writing Human Resource Management , Laura Portolese Dias had simple but important aims:
- Illustrate HRM strategies and theories that any manager needs to know about recruiting, selecting, training, and compensating people
- Provide more relevance to students’ careers
- Give students a more competitive advantage in the workplace.
This text provides practical applications of theory relevant to today’s workplace. In the real world, HRM leverages technology in every aspect of the job—from online training modules to technology for better managing flex-time workers and telecommuters. Therefore, it’s important for students to understand what kinds of platforms exist in today’s workplace to enhance their effectiveness as future managers.
