Organizations in America Analysing Their Structures and Human Resource Practices by Arne L. Kalleberg

Organizations in America Analysing Their Structures and Human Resource Practices


Organizations in America Analysing Their Structures and Human Resource Practices by Arne L. Kalleberg

This volume presents an authoritative database on the workings of organizations in the United States. It describes the National Organizations Study, the first national survey of organizations in the US using a statistically representative sample. As well as outlining the study and the major conclusions it reaches, the book also looks at specific employment practices - hiring, training, promotion, performance measurement, benefit packages and contingent work - and how they compare between different businesses and business sectors. Differential treatment of employees according to ethnicity and gender is examined as part of the analysis of these topics.

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

Dawn Lynch

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

Daran Bellingham

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Teresa O'Halloran

You can trust Lovereading to show unbiased reviews by actual, ordinary readers that help likeminded booklovers choose their next great read.

Linda Hill

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lesley Hart

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.
