READINGS IN HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT A companion volume to Beer, Spector, Lawrence, Mills, and Walton's Human Resource Management: A General Manager's Perspective, this carefully chosen collection of 33 readings provides extensive background information on the theory, institutional arrangements, and current laws and practices underlying the cases in the main text. It also conveys a basic understanding of contemporary ideas and concepts that can guide managers and prospective managers in making effective human-resource policy decisions. As in Human Resource Management, the selections are organized according to a four-pronged policy framework: Employee Influence, Managing Human Resource Flow, Reward Systems, and Work Systems. Ideal either for supplementary or for independent reading, they discuss topics that range from collective bargaining and work force reduction planning to pay for performance, work redesign, and social choice in developing advanced information technology. Included are contributions from such distinguished authorities as Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Daniel Yankelovich, Edward Lawler, George Lodge, D. Quinn Mills, and James Walker.
