It is not surprising that human resource management is increasingly becoming a subject or topic of interest in several training and development seminars. Human resource management (HRM) is likewise a popular major in bachelor's degree programs in colleges today. There is a growing recognition of the need for some formal training in managing human resources and this stems from company leaders' and managers' expectations that HR practitioners ought to contribute to workforce competence, organizational effectiveness, and organizational sustainability.

Company leaders recognize the role that HR practitioners play in talent management, specifically in attracting, motivating, engaging, developing, and retaining a competent workforce. Managing Human Resources: Local and Global Perspectives (Outcomes-based Learning) is in response to this need for training and developing future HR practitioners and managers.

CHED points out that "the changing realities spurred by globalization underscore the shift in contemporary international education discourse from education to life-long learning, and from education as transmission of expert knowledge to education as building learner competencies (CMO #46; Series 2012). This book ensures that the readers can demonstrate acquisition of specific learning outcomes by linking the cases, experiential exercises, and questions for discussion to the expected outcomes.
  • is written by academicians, practitioners, consultants and entrepreneurs who have years of experience in human resource management in a variety of industries, both in the Philippines and abroad.
