About this product
- DescriptionResearch has shown that adult learners prefer a problem solving approach to learning rather than subject centered. This text provides a n-traditional approach to teaching and learning the basics of human resource management through a series of 120 'in-basket' exercises and guided questions. The in-basket exercises focus on real-life problems and issues that confront school administrators on a daily basis. As a result, it scores very high in student interest and satisfaction. A brief history of assessment centers and a sypsis of recognized adult learning theories are also included. Covering 12 HR categories, the exercises are devoted to: recruitment; legal/policy; selection/credentials; collective bargaining; data analysis/budgeting; investigations; employee relations/public relations/counseling; evaluation; contract administration; discipline; planning/problem solving; and grievance(s)/arbitration.
