A company's ability to grow and stay on top of customer demand has always depended heavily on the quality of its people. Now, more than ever, businesses recognize that finding (and keeping!) a highly skilled and motivated workforce is pivotal to success.

Maybe you're a business owner and your company is growing, or you're an employee at a small to midsize company and management has asked you to take on some—or all—of their HR functions. Either way, knowing how to set up and implement successful HR practices (not to mention navigating the legal minefields in today’s increasingly regulated environment) can be tricky.

Human Resources Kit for Dummies, Second Edition, is your one-stop resource for learning the nuts and bolts of HR. It gives you the actual tools—forms, templates, and so on—that you can put to immediate and productive use. Inside, you’ll easily discover how to:

  • Find, hire, and keep top talent
  • Create an effective compensation structure
  • Ensure you’re developing the right benefits package
  • Encourage extraordinary performance
  • Establish an employee-friendly environment
  • And much more

This Second Edition also contains new information on anti-discrimination legislation, measuring employee performance, firing or laying off employees, and the latest training and development plans. The CD-ROM includes updated forms and contracts—from job application forms and sample employee policies to performance appraisals and benefits worksheets. With the tools and helpful information in this book, you’ll experience first-hand how a successful HR administration reaps untold rewards.

Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.
