Schwind Canadian Human Resource Management: A Strategic Approach 10e focuses on the strategic contribution of the human resource function in organizations. The balanced coverage of theory and practice, including coverage of key human resource concepts, issues, and emerging concerns, has made Schwind the choice of over 60 universities and colleges across Canada and earned it the honour of being the best-selling human resource management text in the country.

So, how do you make the market leader even better? A refresh. An update. A brand new design. Two new authors: Neil Fassina from NAIT, and Julie Bulmash from George Brown College, bring a fresh perspective to the proven and distinguished writing team of Hermann Schwind and Terry Wagar. Add a new International HRM chapter and a streamlined table of contents that reduces the chapter count to a manageable 14, and you have a refreshed and updated Schwind.

Retained Features

Spotlight on Ethics – In light of the recent attention paid to ethical behaviour in corporations, this feature hypothesizes problems and issues that are faced by the average HR professional. Consistent with the text’s focus on providing as many ’real life’ examples as possible, the Spotlights on Ethics show students the challenges they might expect when they enter the workforce.

Two running cases have been specifically designed with contrasting approaches to HRM. This gives students an idea of both ‘how to’ and ‘how not to’ run an HR department.

Professional Resource – RPC icons appear throughout the text, guiding students seeking professional designations in HRM, or as a study reference for the national HRM exams (NKEs).

Self Assessment Exercises – This feature appears in every chapter contributing to the ‘hands on’ nature of the text. This feature is not designed to test students’ knowledge of the concepts learned, but rather it allows students to see how the HR principles explained in the text are applicable in real-world situations.

A student-focused text – Reviews have indicated that students like reading this text! The text is rich in examples, experiential exercises, and useful information for the new HR professional and relevant and helpful pedagogical elements. The text features balanced coverage of different types of companies, especially service (most students will be working in the service industry).

A Holistic and Strategic Approach to HRM – Using the authors’ strategic model as its framework, the text emphasizes how HRM impacts an entire organization. Hands on activities and examples, often featuring an ordinary employees’ perspective, are designed to help students understand why the HRM function is important not only to HR professionals but to the organization at large.
