In addition to the dozens of new technology-based text examples such as how to recruit employees and conduct salary surveys on the Internet, we've achieved this expansion in technology in several ways:

New! This edition offers a fully developed online course for HRM in the following formats:


Companion Web Site (
The 9th edition's Web site represents a tremendous leap forward, offering the most robust, content-rich Web support available with any HRM text. This site provides professors with a customized course Web site, including communication tools, one-click navigation of chapter content, resources such as current events and Internet exercises, as well as the Video Guide for the On Location Video Series. For students, there is an interactive study guide (multiple-choice, true/false and essays), an Internet Resource section that provides Web links for all of the companies and Web resources listed in the Dessler text, additional HR forms and figures, appendices to the 9th edition (Establishing HR Systems, Managing Your Career and Quantitative Job Evaluation Methods,) self-assessment exercises, a video tutorial and an HRCI Certification Exam Guide.

A powerful new point-and-click syllabus creation tool
that faculty can use for each course and section they teach. Additionally, faculty can annotate and link each resource on the Web site to their syllabi. Faculty can even upload their own personal resources to our site and have these resources available to their students via their personalized syllabus.
