Technological advances and rapid changes in workforce demographics pose extensive challenges to human resources program evaluators. But little has been done to document successful human resources program assessment and implementation strategies.
The Human Resources Program-Evaluation Handbook is the first book to present state-of-the-art procedures for evaluating and improving human resources programs. Editors Jack E. Edwards, John C. Scott, and Nambury S. Raju provide a user-friendly yet scientifically rigorous "how to" guide to organizational program-evaluation. Integrating perspectives from a variety of human resources and organizational behavior programs, a wide array of contributing professors, consultants, and governmental personnel successfully link scientific information to practical application.
Offering authoritative guidance to both novice and experienced program evaluators, this unique guidebook includes
- New perspectives on organizational program-evaluation
- Methods to assess the efficiency of human resources programs
- Identification of potential pitfalls
- Real-life examples
- Additional references for program-evaluation best practices
The Human Resources Program-Evaluation Handbook provide program-evaluation teams with content-specific guidance. Supplying useful and accurate evaluation techniques, the editors present a manual for enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of most major types of human resources programs.
Designed for academics and graduate students in industrial-organizational psychology, human resources management, and business, the handbook is also an essential resource for human resources professionals, consultants, and policy makers.
