Product Description: UNIT 1. Human Resource Management in Perspective Part A. The Environment of Human Resource Management 1. HR Is Dead, Long Live HR, Shari Caudron, Workforce, January 2003 Business conditions are changing, and people in the human resource field must find new ways to be relevant to organizations or be faced with the prospect of becoming irrelevant in a rapidly changing environment. 2. The State of the Human Resources Profession in 2003: An Interview With Dave Ulrich, Rich Vosburgh, Human Resource Planning Journal, Volume 26, Issue 1, 2003 Dave Ulrich has been an active leader of the human resource community for many years. This interview was conducted just prior to Ulrich’s three-year sabbatical to do missionary work for his church. 3. What Is an Employee? The Answer Depends on the Federal Law, Charles J. Muhl, Monthly Labor Review, January 2002 You may think you are hiring a consultant or an independent contractor, but according to federal law, it may be an employee. Does it make a difference? You bet! 4. Good As Gone, Marianne Kolbasuk McGee, Information Week, September 8, 2003 The job market in the U.S. economy has been down for the past several years and outsourcing jobs to third world countries has been the order of the day. The result of this is employees simply trying to hold on to their jobs. But that may be changing. Part B. Human Resources and Corporate Strategy 5. 7 Steps Before Strategy, Bruce N. Pfau and Bonnie Bell Cundiff, Workforce, November 2002 Over the past decade there has been much emphasis on the role of human resources in contributing to the organization’s strategy. But HR professionals must not lose sight of their basic functions in their efforts to be included in the strategic planning for the organization. 6. Strategic Human Resources Management in Government: Unresolved Issues, Jonathan Tompkins, Public Personnel Management, Spring 2002 Strategic human resource planning in government is different from the private sector. This article addresses those differences and how they alter that function. Part C. Americans with Disabilities Act 7. Unquiet Minds, Aliya Sternstein, Forbes, November 10, 2003 Many adults suffer from attention deficit hyperactive disorder. Organizations and individuals are learning to deal with it, but it takes time, effort, and understanding. 8. The Devil is in the Details, Thomas Clark, Contemporary Long Term Care, January 2004 The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a difficult law to follow and is often at odds with local ordinances. The details of the act and its implementation are the subject of this article. 9. The ADA’s Next Step: Cyberspace, Suzanne Robitaille, Business Week Online, July 28, 2003 The ADA was passed prior to the explosion of the internet. Applying the ADA to the internet and making it more friendly to the disabled will be the next frontier. Part D. Sexual Harassment 10. Not In My Company: Preventing Sexual Harassment, Jim Mulligan and Norman Foy, Industrial Management, September/October 2003 Sexual harassment can result in huge problems for an orgainzation that are preventable. Such charges cost time, money, and reputation. Even if you win—you lose! Part E. 9/11 and the War on Terror 11. The Aesthetics of Security, Ray A. Smith, The Wall Street Journal, February 19, 2003 In an age of increased security concerns, building additional security into the building is one way to address these issues. 12. Aftershocks of War, Linda Wasmer Andrews, HR Magazine, April 2004 Veter

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
