Book Description

The academic and professional careers if many thousands of HRM students and managers have been underpinned by their reading of Torrington et al’s long-standing, comprehensive and market leading text Human Resource Management.

Now, this same author team has developed a brand new concise text, Fundamentals of HRM, aimed primarily at students who are studying for general business and management degrees, or who are studying HRM as part of a combined honours degree with another discipline in arts, languages, humanities or sciences.

Adopting the same accessible and practical perspective on the discipline, the book focuses on the core responsibilities of people management which every manager will have to undertake and understand. A section on skills such as interviewing, coaching and performance appraisal supports this practical approach.

Fundamentals of Human Resource Management: Managing People at work comes with a MyLab Access Card.

What is a MyLab?< /STRONG>

Personalised learning | Online assessment |Your flexible resource to focussed study

Pearson Education’s MyLab products provide an innovative and interactive web-based solution that personalises both the teaching and learning experience. With content developed to match the learning outcomes of the associated textbook, the power of a MyLab lies in the combination of assessment, reporting, and personalised study that helps both students and instructors succeed.  

Within a flexible course management platform, instructors can:

  • Assess student progress through homework quizzes and tests that are easily set using the extensive pre-prepared question bank.
  • Assign short answer, discussion and essay questions from each chapter for student homework or tutorial preparation.
  • Track student activity and performance using detailed reporting capabilities.
  • Communicate with students and teaching staff using email and announcement tools.< /LI>

Students will benefit from a personalised learning experience, where they can:

  • Complete a diagnostic ‘pre-test’ to generate a personal self-study plan that enables them to focus on the topics where their knowledge is weaker.
  • Improve their understanding through a variety of practice activities including; revision flashcards, e-book reading assignments, short answer questions, audio downloads and video cases.
  • Measure their progress with a follow-up ‘post-test’ that ensures they have mastered key learning objectives – and gives them the confidence to move on to the next chapter. 

A dedicated team will give you all the assistance you need to get online and make the most of a MyLab. If you would like to find out more about how to take advantage of this innovative opportunity to personalise your course, please email [email protected]
