Generally a Good HRM Textbook
on February 15, 2009
I am using this text for a graduate class in HRM that I am teaching. Generally, the materials are well presented. However, like most HR texts, it is woefully lacking in HR strategy and I find myself expanding in this area. In addition, it refers to the HR triad as line managers, HR and employees. What happened to the alignment with senior management or strategy itself? I realize the authors have used this concept for years, but I am concerned that the continued use of the concept in an HR survey course (where for some students, this is the only HR class they take), reinforces the incorrect notion that HR belongs nowhere near the top of the organization.
