Steve Barehamabout this book: If you manage a business that has employees or if run your own business and have workers, or if you want to be a manager of people, there is nothing more important than understanding the human resources function.
There are right and wrong ways to do everything from recruitment and selection to employee interviews, to orientation, training, performance evaluation, coaching and team building, even discipline and termination. In this book, the equivalent of a college-level textbook (but not academically written) you acquire valuable processes proven to work and be effective.
College educator Steve Bareham has managed people since he was 22 years old, he has worked with an organizational psychologist, and he has taught human resources courses to college management students, so he's been immersed in the subject matter for decades. You gain the benefit of that experience.
Steve believes that no one is born a naturally good manager. Yes, some people are gifted with suitable personalities for management (good communicators, they know how to listen, and they empathize), but there's a lot more to managing people than that and to do it well, you need good process that saves time and that reduces errors.
The book covers the gamut of human resources management:
• how to conduct job analyses
• how to write job descriptions
• recruitment and selection
• job interviews
• employee orientation
• employee training
• performance evaluation
• coaching and team building
• labor market trends and more…
If you manage people and have never read an HR book or taken an HR course, this book can make a huge difference in how well you perform. It can also improve staff morale and make your life much more pleasant.
