Heneman and Judge’s Staffing Organizations, 7/e, is based on a comprehensive staffing model. Components of the model include staffing models and strategy, staffing support systems (legal compliance, planning, job analysis and rewards), core staffing systems (recruitment, selection, employment), and staffing system and retention management. Up-to-date research and business practices are the hallmarks of this market leading text. In-depth applications (cases and exercises) at the end of chapters provide students with skill-building and practice in key staffing activities and decision-making. A comprehensive running case involving a fictitious retailing organization provides even greater opportunity for in-depth analysis and skill building. Students also have the opportunity to address ethical issues at the end of each chapter.
Unless you need this for school it is not worth the read. They go over the same case study over and over. The idea is good but it doesn’t have a lot of diverse information. If you need it for school, you have no choice. If you want a good read, there are better books out the there for staffing, in my opinion.
Good book for a good price. Seller sent it quick. It got here before my class started. It will be useful later if I get a job in HR when I graduate.
Many classmates of mine thought this paperback copy wasn’t the same as the hardcover. It is exactly the same cover to cover; it’s just about $150 cheaper. I will not sell this book back on Amazon, etc.; this is a book I can always refer back to in my HR career.
I’m using this book for a class for my Bachelor’s degree and it is really easy to read. It’s well written and the chapters and topics are well defined and outlined. The chapters flow through the processes and it’s easy to understand. I wish some of my other textbooks were this easy to read and understand. The best part is I feel like I’m actually learning something not just reading to complete the assignment. Very well written.
