Human Relations

Laura Portolese


Laura Portolese’ goals in writing Human Relations were simple:

    • Provide a solid baseline of issues students will deal with in their careers on a day-to-day basis
    • Help students understand the importance of the human side of their career.

    This textbook is suitable for these courses: Human Relations

    This textbook is suitable for 2 and 4-year institutions.


    PEDAGOGICAL FEATURES:

      • ENGAGING TONE AND EXAMPLES:

      • This book’s easy-to-understand language and tone is written to convey practical information in an engaging way. Every chapter opens with a realistic example which introduces a concept to be explained in detail later.

      • VARIED LEARNING FORMATS:

      • Each chapter contains relevant examples, YouTube videos, figures, learning objectives, key takeaways, exercises, and a chapter-ending case that offer different ways to promote learning.

      • PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT:
      • Many of the end-of-section exercises offer self-assessment quizzes, so students may engage in self-understanding and development.

      • CUSTOMIZABILITY:
      • The Flat World Knowledge publishing model allows instructors to adapt the textbook to the exact needs of their specific class and student body.
