This title, first published in 1995, examines how certain human resource practices link to labor productivity, and sets out to explain why some firms choose particular practices while others do not. In order to clearly model the relationship between labor productivity and how the firm elects to manage its workers the author has focused on one aspect of HRM – the hiring process. This book contains the results of a research project in which the choice of recruitment and selection procedures and their relation to labor productivity for 495 U. S. businesses were investigated. Hiring Practices and Labor Productivity will be of interest to students of business studies and management.
