Human Capital Leadership: A Strategic Approach to Optimizing Workplace Potential
Effective Human Resource Management (HRM) is essential to providing increased value to all organizational stakeholders and enhancing an organization’s strategic competitive advantage. Successful HRM requires well-developed critical thinking skills and a broad awareness and understanding of a wide variety of psychological, economic, organizational, and social concepts, issues and cross-cultural and global phenomena. This anthology provides a comprehensive introduction to dynamic human resource management issues and their wide sweeping impacts for the modern workplace. It presents a wide range of introductory material, management cases, and cross-disciplinary research in an organized, clear, and accessible manner. In addition, this collection provides a concise, lively, and practical approach to engage students and help them to develop their critical thinking skills and human resource competencies, while applying core concepts and issues to a dynamic global workplace environment. While readings were specifically selected and the text designed with undergraduate and graduate students in mind, this anthology will also be informative to management academics and instructors. This text will also instruct organizational managers, leaders, and human resource professionals of all types seeking to understand proven practices and methods to maximize their human capital potential and get the most out of workers that will drive an enhanced competitive advantage in an increasingly competitive global economy.
