Master human relations concepts with MODERN HUMAN RELATIONS AT WORK!

About 20% of the material in the eighth edition of this human relations text is new, relating to the impact of technology in the workplace, the development of knowledge-based organizations, the use of total quality management, the use of charismatic and transformational leadership, and coping with cultural diversity. Sections cover the foundation of human relations, social systems, technical systems, administrative topics, behavioral effectiveness, and the future. Web exercises, new to this edition, encourage students to explore real company Web sites and perform analyses. Hodgetts teaches management at Florida International University.
