Few business functions are more important than putting people where they can do the most good. Get it right, and the business soars. Get it wrong, and the business pays dearly in reduced sales, profits, and productivity. Staffing provides a comprehensive treatment of staffing procedures, policies, techniques, and problems. It includes a number of human resources topics not usually covered in one volume—HR planning, legal aspects of staffing, recruiting, selecting, performance appraisal, career development, and many others—in an integrated system. The method presented is a proven, useful tool that managers and HR people can use to build stronger, more resilient organizations.
From job descriptions to staffing regulations and Federal court decisions, the authors, principals at Human Resource Management Systems in Rockwall, Texas, offer a comprehensive guide to meeting the increasingly complex human resource needs of today's organizations. They apply a systems approach, with staffing viewed as part of an ongoing career planning, development, and assessment function<-->for employees as well as employers. Includes summary tables on major staffing legislation, significant Supreme Court and Circuit Court of Appeals decisions, and the legal cases discussed in the text.
