Fundamentals of Human Resource Management, 10th Edition (EHEP000184) cover image
When organizations face challenges such as an economy in recession, they depend on thoroughly trained professionals to react quickly to changes and create strategies for success.  Fundamentals of Human Resource Management offers a concise and practical approach to selecting and training people with the skills necessary to pursue strategies effectively.  This engaging text offers a managerial decision-making context through a wealth of real-world applications, including real-world cases and hands-on interactive scenarios.

Bestselling authors David DeCenzo and Stephen Robbins have channeled their significant industry experience for students throughout the U.S. and across the world.  For every element of HRM—recruitment, training, motivation, retention, safety, employment law, globalization, and compensation—the new 10th Edition contains content, cases, and questions both broad and thorough enough to equip all students with a solid foundation to achieve professional success.
