Heneman and Judges Staffing Organizations, 6/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. Key Features: Each chapter has been updated to reflect the rapidly evolving terrain of strategic, technological, practical and legal issues confronting organizations and their staffing systems. As always, the authors provide considerable updating of the references, found as chapter endnotes. Chapter by chapter updates follow. Chapter 3 has added coverage on the prevalence of outsourcing, both domestically and internationally. It also includes a new section on technological changes and their impact on HR planning. There is also new material on trend analyses. The introductory section in Chapter 4 is revamped to reflect the changing nature of jobs. To reflect the continuing push for accountability in human resources, Chapters 5 and 6 include tables illustrating metrics for recruiting, and in Chapter 7, there is a new section on Staffing Metrics and Benchmarks. Chapter 8 includes an updated and expanded section on resumes, with a particular focus on resume fabrications and distortions and tips for applicants to get a resume noticed. It also includes a new and expanded section on licensing and certification requirements, new material on background checks including the legality of criminal background checks, and new material on legal disclaimers. To reflect a rapidly expanding research base, Chapter 9 includes new sections on Situational Judgment Tests and Emotional Intelligence. Chapter 12 has expanded material on hiring bonuses, reneging on accepted job offers, and enforcement of non-compete agreements. Chapter 13 has been extensively revised to reflect the nearly universal acceptance of human resource information systems in organizations of all sizes.< The length of the text has been managed by trimming areas that have waned in interest or importance, such as graphology, accomplishment records, customized skills inventories).< The Tanglewood running case is retained and improved. The organization is on a high growth trajectory, but has decentralized HR and staffing systems. A rich description of the organization and its staffing practices is provided. The organization is seeking to improve its staffing practices in several facets, and the student participates in in-depth exercises that represent improvement attempts. The full text of the case and the assignment is located online at Strong Ethics Coverage--Chapter one includes a section on staffing ethics, along with a set of staffing ethics guidelines, and at the end of each chapter, two ethical issues are presented to ponder, discuss and resolve.
