Engaging by Example: Loaded with examples and activities to punctuate the importance and value of key topics.

Real World Challenge and Response: Each chapter starts and concludes with an HR challenge faced by an actual company and how the company addressed the challenge.

Video Cases: Each chapter is supported by four videos about the fictional company, Happy Time Toys. The first video introduces an HR challenge. Three videos demonstrate alternate solutions.

Case Studies: Throughout the book, case studies demonstrate how real companies responded to HR events and challenges. The discussion questions are designed to improve analytical and problem-solving skills.
