Stewart and Brown's Human Resource Management: Linking Strategy to Practice 2e is designed to help students understand traditional human resource concepts within a decision-making framework. Throughout the book, the authors emphasize how organizations excel when they have consistent human resource practices that align with their strategic direction. The strategic perspective is critical for both business and management majors, since most will work as managers with the charge to lead and direct others. Understanding the strategic benefits of good human resource management can help future managers better secure and motivate talented employees.

Human Resource Management: Linking Strategy to Practice 2e illustrates how specific human resource practices help increase organizational effectiveness.
