Product description


What is the single most impressive aspect of this textbook?

"It covers current technology regarding HRIS." ―Kevin Brown, Florida Int′l Univ

"I think it is the best yet to come along. It does a good job of integrating the different responsibilities of HR with the available technology." ―Marc S. Miller, Manhattanville College

"The fact that it was written with the full orientation to HRIS. The references themselves make a very comprehensive databank of materials that prove valuable to any student." ―Gilleo, Lindenwood University

"The vignettes and the case studies." ―Robin Watkins, DeVry University

"The thing I like the most about this text is that it is a comprehensive review and discussion of the history and current state of affairs in the use of human resource information systems. The series of essays gives students a look at HRISs from multiple viewpoints. Faculty can utilize the text as their main teaching aid or supplement it easily by assigning additional readings from the ample references provided at the end of each chapter. With the case studies and vignettes provided students can easily relate the materials to real world applications for an overall richer learning experience." ―Neptali Martinez, New York University

"In linking the technology to the HR business application, the book appears less threatening and becomes more of a helpful reference document." ―Julie Siliven, San Antonio College

We used the first edition and it is the most thorough review of HR Technology on the market. -- Melodie Dorminy Published On: 2011-09-01
