"The practice and science of HR come together!"

Joseph Simon
Casper College

"I would say that this HR textbook is a more research-focused and data-driven textbook. It really focuses on the importance of leveraging data to make more informed HR decisions. It is evidence-based and draws more heavily on research. I think it is a textbook that would challenge our students more and better prepare them for the changing nature of human resources."

Kathleen Jones
University of North Dakota

"[This is] the start of a new era in HR textbooks by linking content to the SHRM competencies and making the concepts more applicable in practice using the EBDM approach."

Randy McCamey
Tarleton State University

"The text provides relevant and current research data through real world scenarios which impacts current HRM challenges."

Mike Bojanski

"This text provides a very engaging and illustrative overview and analysis of current topics in HRM. It engages the students to think beyond the content of the book and evaluate how they have been or how they want to be treated in organizations from an HR perspective."

Bruce Gillies
California Lutheran University

"This text is an excellent Introduction to Human Resources text. Its major advantage over competing books is the conveying the growing importance of analytics in HR management."

Jeffrey Hefel
Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota

"This textbook is very well written and extremely detailed. I feel like all of the HR books I have used are not this in-depth in their scope nor do they cover so many important topics. In addition, all of the information in the text is supported by research and current real-world examples."

Candice A. Osterfeld Ottobre
University of Akron

"I truly enjoy the HRM textbook by Bauer et al. All major HR practices are thoroughly discussed and important concepts are highlighted nicely with definition boxes and effective visuals. The book is very up-to-date and features many sections that I usually add to my teaching due to their importance, but that haven't been highlighted enough in other books (e.g. diversity recruitment, flexible work arrangements, gig work, employee handbook)."

Doreen Matthes
Kent State University

"[This is] one of the very very few books that look at HRM from a data-driven perspective."
