Managing people is the most challenging part of any leader's job. And that job's not getting any easier as the human resources profession grows more dynamic and constantly changes. The Big Book of HR provides any business owner, manager, or HR professional with the most current information to get the most from their talent - from strategic HR-related issues to the smallest tactical detail of managing people.

Each topic covered includes information on associated legal issues - such as the recent changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act`s overtime regulations - and stories from leading organizations to illustrate the positive impact human resources can have on organizations of any size. Each chapter ends with discussion questions to encourage additional thought. Sample forms and templates plus a list of additional resources are also included.

The latest edition of The Big Book of HR includes up-to-date information about how to:
  • Select, engage, and retain the best talent for your organization.
  • Develop attractive and fair compensation and benefits programs.
  • Manage and develop your employees.
  • Resolve conflict and maintain communications throughout the organization.
  • Develop performance-management systems that reflect current trends and best practices.
  • Use technology to effectively manage the human resources function.

    Barbara Mitchell is an author, speaker, and human resources consultant. She is the coauthor of The Essential Workplace Conflict Handbook and The Essential HR Handbook. After a long HR career with Marriott International, Barbara is now managing partner of The Mitchell Group and works with a variety of clients to help them hire, develop, engage, and retain the best talent available.

    Cornelia Gamlem, SPHR, president of The GEMS Group, Ltd., consults, speaks, and writes on human resource and management issues. She has testified before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and is the coauthor of The Essential Workplace Conflict Handbook and Roadmap to Success: 5 Steps to Putting Action into Your Affirmative Action Plan.
