DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This exciting new book has grown from a need to provide practical advice to managers who deal with contemporary human resource and change issues. A crucial role of a manager is to respond in the best interests of the organisation and at the same time retain talent. Skill shortages and ageing populations in developed economies and the need for emerging economies to develop their workforce coincide to present managers with unique challenges. Human Resource Management and Change: A practising managers guide offers a timely overview of recent environmental and economic changes as depicted by the DELTA forces of change. These include demographic, environmental, legal, technical and attitudinal changes that are in part the product of globalization, and the Global Financial Crisis (GFC). The fundamental strategies for managing change and implementing human resource practices are clearly explained. End of chapter study guides further explain the topics of the chapters by providing case studies and review and discussion questions as well as further reading. The text reflects the everyday challenge managers face in a turbulent environment and focuses on providing practical guidelines to managers who may not have higher academic qualifications to help them manage people and change.

Dr. Packianathan Chelladurai, pioneer in the field of sport management, continues to bring his expertise to this edition; he is joined by new coauthor Dr. Shannon Kerwin, an active researcher in organizational behavior and human resource management in sport. With more than 50 collective years of experience in teaching management of human resources, Chelladurai and Kerwin synthesize the core dynamics of human resources and the management of these resources as well as the role of the sport and recreation manager. The third edition’s updated references, examples, and studies reflect the increased growth, interest, and complexity in human resource management in recreation and sport in recent years. Additional enhancements of the third edition include the following: • A new opening chapter on the significance of human resources describes consumer services, professional services, and human services and provides a model for the subsequent chapters. • A greater emphasis is placed on recruitment and training as an essential component of success. • New “Technology in Human Resource Management” and “Diversity Management of Human Resources” sidebars connect theory to practice for sport managers as they confront contemporary issues in the workplace. • Case studies at the end of each chapter help students apply concepts from the chapter to real-world scenarios. • Instructor ancillaries help instructors prepare for class with the use of an instructor guide with a syllabus, tips for teaching, and additional resources, as well as an image bank. In addition, updated pedagogical aids include learning objectives, summaries, lists of key terms, comprehension questions, and discussion questions to guide student learning through each chapter. Sidebars throughout the text provide applied concepts, highlight relevant research, and offer digestible takeaways. Organized into four parts, the text begins by outlining the unique and common characteristics of the three groups of human resources in sport and recreation. Part II focuses on differences in people and how the differences affect behavior in sport and recreation organizations. In part III, readers explore significant organizational processes in the management of human resources. Part IV discusses two significant outcomes expected of human resource practices: satisfaction and commitment. Finally, a conclusion synthesizes information and presents a set of founding and guiding themes. Human Resource Management in Sport and Recreation, Third Edition, explains essential concepts in human resources in the sport and recreation industries. The authors present a clear and concise treatise on the critical aspects of management of human resources within sport and recreational organizations to help aspiring and current professionals maximize their potential in the field.

Editor: Excel Books India

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In today s era of International business, International Human Resource Management (IHRM) is emerging as a crucial factor since organizations are run by people. What is interesting in this phenomenon is, not only that there are differences in people across the countries, but even within a country or regions within it. This complex socio-cultural and psychological fabric coupled with historical, geographic, economic and political factors, creates certain boundary conditions and makes IHRM a very complex process. The intention of this book is to portray the various factors that are connected with managing Human Resources in International Business. Since the two are inseparable, any organization aspiring to participate as a player in international business must develop the knowledge, skills and acumen to perceive the subtle nuances that govern the rules of game. IHRM as a discipline cuts across all other business operations in the international context and plays a vital role in the success or failure of a business venture since, businesses are essentially driven by people. In the light of the above, this book has sought to address some of the issues that relate to IHRM, which need to be logically understood by any keen observer of international business, today. The approach of this book has been to detail IHRM both, in terms of a function, as well as a process and the factors or key elements that are attached to them.To make this book reader-friendly, chapter highlights have been added at the beginning of each chapter to facilitate the reader to identify the broader areas that may be learnt from a particular chapter. Each chapter also contains detailed references and key terms. Conceptual questions, multiple choices, web-based exercises are some of the additional features of the book. Relevant diagrammatic representation, relevant case study and list of web references have been also added in this book.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Managing people in a multinational context is the essence of international human resource management. This requires a broader perspective of what operating internationally involves, and a clear recognition of the range of issues pertaining to all categories of staff operating in different functional, task and managerial capacities. Books that are available on the subject are heavily loaded with cultural aspects rather than HRM processes. From teaching experience, it is noticed that students who are familiar with domestic HRM books find it difficult to comprehend the subject of international HRM. Therefore the topics are arranged in the traditional HRM style with international implications at each stage. A separate chapter is allocated for Expatriation & Repatriation. Similarly Management of People in international context in sixteen countries is discussed in a separate chapter.The text aims to cover in terms of industries, to illustrate the activities and approaches of international organisations. Also, the coverage of different cultures is not intended to include all the different and diverse cultures of the world, simply to enable sufficient understanding of the cultural contexts from which many of the approaches are derived, and to provide background on the appropriateness of different aspects of managing people in international organisations. A detailed treatment to empirical researches on cross cultural issues and cross cultural, comparative management issues arising out of cross border mergers and acquisitions as well as human resource issues emerging out of global acquisitions of Arcelor and Corus by Indian companies and companies of Indian origin are also treated in the text.
