  • NEW! Human Resource Management is not only essential in large corporations - it's just as important in small businesses and start-ups as well. To better train and inform students who are, or will be, applying HR concepts in a full range of business situations, the authors have enhanced their focus on small businesses in this edition. Each chapter now includes a boxed feature called Small Business Application that explains how chapter concepts can be uniquely applied in a small business environment.
  • NEW! Studies show that when reading textbooks, students need to be re-engaged every three to four pages. That's why every main sub-topic within a chapter now kicks off with a thought-provoking question. These questions encourage students to analyze and evaluate what they're reading as they're reading it, and more importantly, empowers students to apply the material to real-life situations.
  • NEW! Snell/Bohlander's MANAGING HUMAN RESOURCES is known as a case-based text, and the authors strive to keep these cases relevant and timely. Half of the shorter, chapter-ending Case Studies have been replaced with new cases, and one-third of the longer, more challenging Comprehensive Cases at the end of the book have also been replaced with new cases.
  • NEW! Because Web 2.0 technologies are now such a prevalent part of our lives, the authors have woven in examples of how HR professionals are using modern technology, such as social media and crowd sourcing, in the recruitment and selection of new candidates.
  • NEW! Technology also plays a major role in the teaching of this course. An entirely new set of video cases and corresponding questions are now available. The book also includes updated Using the Internet column feature assignments.
  • NEW! The 16th edition's Test Bank has been significantly upgraded with the inclusion of many more analysis and application-based questions.
  • EMPHASIS ON THE MOST CURRENT PRACTICES AND ISSUES PROVIDE TIMELY UNDERSTANDING OF HR TODAY - Ensure your students are familiar with the most current HR practices and how to apply them with timely examples and special features, including "how-to" tips within this edition. Learning features and examples throughout focus on real, memorable examples from actual organizations to display how businesses and managers perform HR functions. This focus on real-world illustrations addresses both small businesses and international topics.
  • FOCUS ON CONTEMPORARY WORK ENVIRONMENT HIGHLIGHTS KEY HR RELATIONSHIPS AND RESULTS - No other book gives your students a more accurate look at the specific details and challenges in today's work environment. Students see how HR specialists work in partnership with line managers and team directors, and how the most effective managers incorporate HR policy into regular interactions with employees.
  • INTEGRATED LEARNING SYSTEM EASES PREPARATION AND STUDY - Icons in the text margins and throughout all print ancillaries link coverage back to key learning objectives, making it easier for both you and your students to focus on the most critical points of each chapter.
  • COMPREHENSIVE CASES DELVE INTO CRITICAL HRM CHALLENGES -Ten comprehensive cases at the end of the text portray some of the most current issues and challenges in HRM. In addition, at least two case studies per chapter delve into current HRM issues in real business settings to encourage students to critically analyze possible solutions.
  • EXPANDED COVERAGE OF TODAY'S KEY HR TOPICS AND THE LATEST HR UPDATES PREPARE STUDENTS FOR TOMORROW'S SUCCESS - The latest edition of this market-leading text offers more coverage of critical HR issues, such as diversity, outsourcing/illegal immigration, today's labor issues, and employee benefits.
  • "HIGHLIGHTS IN HRM" EXAMINE TIMELY ORGANIZATIONAL CONCERNS AND PRACTICAL CHALLENGES -Your students gain in-depth looks at how actual organizations handle human resource issues and functions as many new "Highlights in HRM" include "HR Planning and Strategy: Questions to Ask Business Managers" (Ch. 2), "Best Practices for Employee Testing and Selection" (Ch. 6), and "Employee Stock Option Plans" (Ch. 10).
