“Human Resource Management Essentials is a clear and comprehensive foundational overview of the purpose and multifaceted role of the Human Resources function within an organization. Ms. Gilbert builds upon the history of the nature of work, pre and post-Industrial Revolution, building an important chronology that depicts how ‘work’ and ‘workers’ have evolved in response to shifting societal needs and how effectively managing human resources is a business imperative for organizational success and sustainability. Through a compelling integration of theoretical and conceptual content, relevant process models, and real-world practices and resources, Ms. Gilbert offers both a strategic and tactical resource for developing a sound knowledge base and skill set in human resource management that can be leveraged for more advanced deep-dive examination of each HR topic as well as applied in actual professional settings and contexts.”
