February 2009 | 432 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Applied Human Resources Management is designed to give business students in-depth hands-on learning experiences that will help them practice the principles they are learning and develop the skills necessary when dealing with people in diverse settings and situations.

The text:

- covers critical issues in the effective management of human resources, which can be used for class discussions, or be given as homework problems, or used as essay questions on tests.

- presents students with a situation where they can apply an HRM concept or principle to a new situation, which can be used as in-class exercises, or for self-study

- provides experiential exercises, giving students an opportunity to learn by doing, which can be used again as in-class or out-of-class exercises
