CCH Introduces 1999 U.S. Master Human Resources Guide, Comprehensive Treatment Of Core Knowledge For HR Professionals

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., March 5, 1999) – Now there is a thorough, single-source reference on the entire range of human resource issues, practices and policies available from CCH INCORPORATED, a leading provider of human resource and benefits law information. The CCH 1999 U.S. Master™ Human Resources Guide provides comprehensive coverage of the core body of knowledge needed by anyone engaged in professional human resources management.

The Guide addresses human resources concepts, law, management, communication and compliance issues. Definitions of industry-specific terms are clearly set off in the text and also in a comprehensive glossary. Time-saving features include sample policies and forms, checklists and worksheets.

The content of the Guide is wide-ranging, from defining the human resources management function to a discussion of basic concepts, planning and information systems. It also covers the role of research and auditing in carrying out the human resources management function – from job analysis to employment verification, from compensation planning to benefit cost containment, from pay structure management to collective bargaining, from safety and health to international human resources management.

While designed for the front-line human resources professional, the Guide is also a useful desktop reference for attorneys, accountants, consultants and libraries. The comprehensive content and clear definitions also make it ideally suitable for use in human resources courses and training programs.

The Guide includes those subjects defined as "in the common body of knowledge" by the Human Resources Certification Institute, for the purpose of preparing examinations for the Professional in Human Resources and Senior Professional in Human Resources examinations. This makes the Guide an excellent resource to use alone or to supplement other study materials in preparing for certification examinations.
