The Ninth Edition of Human Resource Management: Gaining a Competitive Advantage was developed to teach students how to face and meet a variety of challenges within their organizations and how to gain a competitive advantage for their companies. This product represents a valuable approach to teaching human resource management for several reasons: The content draws from the diverse research, teaching, and consulting experiences of the four authors who have taught human resource management to undergraduates, MBA students, and experienced managers and professional employees. The teamwork approach gives a depth and breadth to the coverage that is not found in other texts. The content emphasizes how the HRM function, as well as the management of human resources, can help companies gain a competitive advantage. The content discusses current issues such as social networking, talent management, diversity, and employee engagement, all of which have a major impact on business and HRM practice. Strategic human resource management is introduced early in the book and integrated throughout the text. Examples of how new technologies are being used to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of HRM practices are presented. Examples of how companies are evaluating HRM practices to determine their value are discussed.

Ende der 60er Jahre beschäftigte ich mich eher zufällig mit kulturellen Unterschiede- und stieß dabei auf umfangreiches Material für eine Studie. Als Ergebnis dieser Studie wurde im Jahr 1980 ein Buch zu diesem Thema mit dem Titel Culture's Consequences veröffentlicht. Es war bewußt für ein Fachpublikum geschrieben, denn es weckte Zweifel an der Allgemeingültigkeit traditioneller Lehren der Psychologie, Organisationssoziolo gie und Manag!!menttheorie: ich mußte daher sowohl die theoretische Argumentation darlegen, als auch Basisdaten und die statistischen Verfahren angeben, an hand derer ich meine Thesen aufstellte. Die 1984 erschienene Taschenbuchausgabe verzichtete auf Basisdaten und Statistik, war ansonsten aber mit der gebundenen Ausgabe von 1980 identisch. Culture's Consequences erschien in einer Zeit, als das Interesse an kulturellen Unterschie den sowohl zwischen Ländern als auch zwischen Organisationen rapide anstieg; es gab damals kaum empirisch gestützte Informationen zu diesem Thema. Die Unterschiede zwischen Ländern waren zwar auch in dem vorherigen Buch enthalten, aber vielleicht waren es zu viele auf einmal. Offensichtlich haben sich viele Leser nur mit einem Teil des Inhalts befaßt. Viele Leute, die sich auf das Buch berufen, behaupten beispielsweise, ich hätte die Wertvorstellungen von IBM-(oder "Hermes-") Führungskräften untersucht. Die von mir verwendeten Daten bezogen sich auf IBM-Mitarbeiter, und wie das Buch selbst zeigte, ist dies ein erheblicher Unterschied.

Ein Standard für professionelles Human Capital Reporting (HCR) mit aussagefähigen und quantifizierbaren Informationen Der Standard HCR10 beschreibt, wie sich personalwirtschaftlich relevante Tatbestände in der Berichterstattung der Unternehmen niederschlagen sollen. Durch eine derartige Standardisierung erfolgt eine Vereinfachung im Prozess der Berichterstattung. Vor allem aber werden die „HR-Metrics“ durch ihre Strukturäquivalenz lesbar, verstehbar und damit vergleichbar. Zum Inhalt * Der erste Abschnitt dieses Buches betont die Aktualität und Relevanz einer Standardisierung des Human Capital Reportings. Die derzeitige Ausgangslage sowie Ziele und Trends, denen sich das HCR gegenüber sieht, werden verdeutlicht. * Die Systematik des HCR10, welche unmissverständlich klar macht, welche Kennzahlen einen Bericht über Personal (sei es im Geschäfts-, im Nachhaltigkeits- oder im Personalbericht) aussagekräftig machen wird im zweiten Abschnitt vorgestellt. * Der dritte Abschnitt widmet sich der konkreten Ausgestaltung des HC-Reportings. Anhand von illustrativen Beispielen wird verdeutlicht, wie die Berichterstattung der einzelnen geforderten Kennzahlen aussehen kann. * Wer bei der Erstellung eines Berichts welche Aufgaben übernehmen und welche Daten liefern sollte, wird im vierten Abschnitt erörtert. Zudem wird diskutiert, welchen Nutzen ein dem HCR10 entsprechendes Reporting für diverse Interessengruppen wie Personalleiter, Aufsichtsräte, Wirtschaftsprüfer oder Bewerber hat. * Im abschließenden fünften Abschnitt wird eine Vision für das HC-Reporting in Deutschland formuliert. Über die Autoren Prof. Dr. Christian Scholz ist Inhaber des Lehrstuhls für Organisation, Personal- und Informationsmanagement an der Universität des Saarlandes. Thomas Sattelberger leitet als Vorstand das Personalressort bei der Deutschen Telekom AG. Dieses Buch ist Pflichtlektüre für HR-Verantwortliche, die sich mit Personal-Controlling und -Reporting befassen – einem wichtigen Thema in großen Unternehmen, aber auch in KMU. Das Buch richtet sich bewusst aber auch an Aufsichtsräte, Vorstände, Wirtschaftsprüfer und Analysten: Sie sollen die hohe Berichtsqualität des HCR10 einfordern und nutzen.

Egal ob Tellerwäscher, Investmentbanker oder leitender Angestellte, jede Arbeit kann unglücklich machen. Auch wenn die Karriere noch so gut geplant und den eigenen Interessen und Fähigkeiten entsprechend gewählt wurde, quälen sich viele Menschen jeden Morgen zur Arbeit um abends noch frustrierter nach Hause zu kommen. Bestseller Autor und Business-Guru Patrick Lencioni erzählt die unvergessliche Geschichte Brian Baileys, eines pensionierten Vorstandsvorsitzenden auf der Suche nach dem Sinn in seiner Arbeit und seinem Leben. -------- Als alle Mitarbeiter Platz genommen hatten, begann Brian Bailey. Er entschied sich, direkt auf den Punkt zu kommen, der ihm unter den Nägeln brannte: "Handzeichen bitte. Wer von Ihnen mag seinen Job?" Keine Reaktion. Die Mitarbeiter sahen ihn an, als hätte er russisch mit ihnen geredet. "Also gut", Brian grinste. "Dann muss ich wohl deutlicher werden. Okay, wie wär's damit: Wer findet die Aussicht, zur Arbeit zu gehen, schön? Wer hat gute Laune, wenn er hier ankommt?" Brian hätte genauso gut fragen können, ob sie gern ausgepeitscht werden wollten. Keine Hand ging hoch, der eine oder die andere lachte laut. -------- Auf einer ungewöhnlichen Reise, die ihn vom Vorstandszimmer eines angesehenen Unternehmens zu den Skipisten am Lake Tahoe und schließlich zur Bestellannahme einer Fastfood Kette führt, entlarvt Brian die drei Symptome, die jede Arbeit zu einer miserablen Angelegenheit machen können (Nichtmessbarkeit, Anonymität und Irrelevanz) und bietet Managern und Angestellten eine Lösung um sie einzudämmen. So versucht er Investmentbanker davon zu überzeugen, dass Arbeitszufriedenheit wichtig ist oder er motiviert den Pizzalieferanten freundlicher zu seinen Kunden zu sein. Sowohl für den Manager, der versucht Wettbewerbsvorteile zu schaffen und seine Angestellten zu motivieren, als auch für den Mitarbeiter, der nach persönlicher Erfüllung in seiner Arbeit sucht, bietet das Buch unmittelbare Linderung - und Hoffnung.
