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.

Dear All,

It's always illegal to post copyrigted material and yes I accept i have done wrong in posting this book right here at this forum.

My personal repository goes on to Human Resources Management, Top Management Consulting, Change Mangement, .... Many MORE..... in the arens of conceptualzing to profit making.

My repository is 20 thousand plus of books starting from 18th centuary onwary and I have literally grazed starting from baby born to death, earth to universe, natural to super-natural, and many more...... but its all purely based on psychology, interperonal interactions, NLP based on Father of NLP - Richard Bandler and his Accomplices and his partners etc.., Spiritual learning from Indian Vedas 5 Bases & additional writeups thereof ... and many more written from the inspiraton from there of .....

Practicing continuously along with people in training programmes, Self Help Groups, Coaching Mentoring relationships, Organization transformations structures, name can be anything.

More secure would have been that i could had sent the material
Unanimously to who so ever who would have requested for the same.
It's only due to us that this forum can be sued and get closed down.

I take this ownership and wont post in future any kind of material in hard or soft from at all.

I will keep helping those who want help.

thanks & warm reagards
