“Excellent data-driven text.” — Kevin J. Hurt

“A state-of-the-art textbook on HRM.” — Robert W. Halliman

“?adds elements of currency and insight based on business and industry trends. The book purports to focus on data analysis and improving HR decision making skills based on data, objectivity, ethics, and legal frameworks.” — Jalane Meloun

“This [HRM] textbook does a much better job of acknowledging the importance of data and gives students a chance to work with data?a big plus.” — Brian D. Webster

“This textbook is an all-encompassing book that covers in detail, the critical performance areas of human resource management and how information technology is used for decision making and in creating a competitive advantage.” — Benjamin B. Yumol

“[Human Resource Management] is a well written, well organized textbook with current cases taken from today?s headlines, laid out in an instructor and student friendly way.  If our college wants to emphasize data driven analytical HRM strategic decision making, this is the perfect introductory text.” — Otha Carlton Hawkins

“With the recent changes to the HR field as a whole to be a more integrated discipline, Bauer et al?s text does a spectacular job of expanding upon core content from organizational behavior, business law, business analytics, leadership, and management and frames that content in an HR lens?this text provides in-depth integration of those topics fused with current case studies and references to popular culture.” — Lou L. Sabina

“A refreshing approach to HRM that highlights the importance of HRM in maintaining and building the bottom line for companies and enhancing work environments.” — Robert W. Halliman

“The practice and science of HR come together!” — Joseph Simon

“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

“[This is] an upper-level HRM textbook that presents material with a data-focused approach. The textbook covers traditional HRM concepts such as job analysis, talent management, and occupational safety and health through the use of a data-analytics approach, in which students actually practice implementing HRM decisions using data.” — Caitlin A. Demsky

“[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

“Very quantitative in its application. References a great deal of research from SHRM and heavy emphasis on data analytics.” — Terry J. Schindler

“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

“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

“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 –This text refers to the paperback edition.
