Book Review - The BIG BOOK of HR

I don't think I write much anymore.  I am too busy reading.  Pros and cons to this though I must say, I am really enjoying the reading part.

The Big Book of HR provides a complete overview of human resources.  It covers topics including recruiting, compensation, benefits, employee performance development, technology, and potential impact.

That's the dry account.

The rich account is this:  The Big Book of HR provides some terrific insight into the day-to-day responsibilities in an HR office.  The book examines concepts, includes definitions, has links to resources, and ends each chapter with discussion questions.

It covers a lot of ground.  

The drawback for such a great book is that it's in print.  Links will quickly become outdated.  Social media strategies will change.  Laws will change.

But that's life.

Short term, I would highly recommend this book for anyone just starting out in HR, is thinking about HR, or would like some ideas for alternative thoughts and ideas.

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher.  I was not paid for this review.  Views and endorsement are my own.
