Human Resource Selection. (International Edition) introduces future and current practitioners to the technical challenges, most recent research and todays most popular selection tools. This book’s engaging, focused presentation offers advanced coverage that details the development and implementation of effective selection programmes within today’s organisations.
Gatewood and Feild have definitely written the authoritative volume on selecting employees. They cover everything: legal issues, measurement, selection decision making strategies, job analysis, and the whole gamut of selection devices: application forms, biodata, interviews, ability tests, personality tests, assessment centers, integrity testing, and so on and so forth. And they cover these topics IN DEPTH — not just a brief overview.
The countless examples are very helpful. And the authors display a great dry humour. The writing is polished and clearly directed toward students, and any controversial issues are given a good, balanced treatment. It also helps that the authors are quite willing to poke fun at themselves and the intensity with which they approach a topic that, to a student, probably seems obsessively nerdy.
