Each chapter's material is firmly grounded in the current HR academic literature, but the book's friendly, conversational tone conveys basic principles of good practice without technical jargon. Designed to make the material more accessible and personally relevant, the book includes the following special features: *Manager's Checkpoints--a series of questions that help the reader apply the material to his or her own organizational context; *Boxes that describe real-life examples of how companies respond to HR challenges; *For Further Reading--references to articles published in outlets that bridge the academic-practitioner divide; *Manager's Knots--presented in a question-and-answer format, these describe typical managerial problems, take the reader into some of the gray, ambiguous areas of HR, and suggest ways to apply the chapter material to real-life managerial dilemmas; and *An Instructor's Manual available to instructors who adopt the book for classroom use.
