Praise for The HR Toolkit
“Dozens of sample memos, policies, training aids, exercises, checklists and more that readers can use immediately for a wide range of HR tasks. Author Denise A. Romano, an HR professional for more than 14 years, does more than offer sample documents and review laws relevant to HR. She urges HR professionals to be “credible activists” who are willing—and well-trained enough—to point out when their companies are violating laws or just handling things improperly through inadvertent errors. She also addresses HR professionals’ worries—including advising them on coping with workplaces that devalue HR. ”

This review is from: The HR Toolkit: An Indispensable Resource for Being a Credible Activist (Paperback)

Denise Romano’s The HR toolkit delivers all that it promises…and then some. This insightful and invaluable resource for HR professionals offers a careful look into the necessary skills to become (or fine tune being) a credible activist, provides a collection of essential HR laws into one place, and gives the reader the needed tools to address a variety of HR issues. This book combines strategic and practical solutions for HR leaders, who encounter daily a multitude of personnel challenges. With topic descriptions, federal employment law overviews, and sample memos and checklists, its get-down-to-basics, hands-on approach makes it easy for the reader to understand the often complex and highly detailed process of human resources management. I highly recommend this book for both the novice and seasoned HR professional.
