Good introduction to HR,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Human Resources for the Non-HR Manager (Paperback)
This is a great book for people with no HR background. It covers a lot of ground in an engaging way. The book is organized in small chapters. Each chapter deals with one aspect of the employment cycle, from hiring to firing. The book covers legal aspects of employment (Civil Right Act, American with Disabilities Act, etc.) and practical aspects of human resource management (how to interview, how to setup a compensation system, etc.). There are regular 'manager knots' which present practical problems (and solutions). The chapters end with pointers to further reading.
I was tempted to give this book 5 stars. However I have some minor concerns with it. The book is only an introduction. There are topics that are not dealt with or only to a limited extend. To give some examples: the Labor Fair Standards Act is not mentioned and exit interviews are not considered. I would have liked to see those topics covered.
Overall this is a great introduction to HR issues for people new to human resources.
