The Simple Side of Human Resource Management

Managing People Should Not Be Difficult, Boring or Scary 

Learn to understand some of the some of the more complex aspects of human resource management in a simpler context.

If you are interested in understanding human resource management in greater detail, but you are just not in the mood for those stale academic written, hard to understand, boring textbooks, then this book is just for you.

If you are simply looking for additional information and wish to supplement your existing knowledge on human resource management, well then this book is for you.

For the sake of covering both angles, this book includes the academic writing, as well as simpler written interpretations of the same information. The non-academic people amongst us, or simply those who will benefit from a simpler side of things can benefit none the less.

With a pinch of salt, a dash of garnish, this book will help you understand some of the in-depth parts of the human resource management paradigm.

You may at some parts feel that you have completely lost your way, but fear not. As I have, and many before us, you will survive the journeys into the paradigms of the business management empire.

You will learn about Human Resource Management Functions

Topics in this section deal with: 

Roles and Responsibilities of a human resource manager

The purpose of developing a human resource plan

Recruitment techniques during recruitment and selection

Stages of team development

Effective communication in leadership and management

Developing and implementing a training plan

Performance appraisal feedback methods

You will learn about Human Resource Management in perspective

Topics in this section deal with: 

Human Resource Lifecycle

Human Capital Management

Differentiate Workforce Planning vs. Human Resource Planning

Importance of Workforce Gap Analysis

Succession Planning

Link between Strategic Plans and Job Description

Difference between Remuneration and Reward

Appropriateness of reward systems for motivating employees

Benefits of a Well-Functioning Performance Management Process

Links between Performance Appraisal and Career Development


I have no doubt you will find this book of significant value.
