The AMA handbook of business writing : the ultimate guide to style, grammar, usage, punctuation, construction, and formatting by K Wilson( )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 2,884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Just because you are not a born writer does not mean you should settle for less than perfect business documents. After all, every piece you write reflects directly on the quality of the product or service your business offers. This guide takes the guesswork out of more than 50 commonly used business documents, including: reports, proposals, business plans, presentations, press releases, memos, email, newsletters, collection letters, sales materials, and more. Arranged alphabetically and cross referenced for easier use, the book presents examples of how to (and how not to) create winning materials every time. The authors' step by step instructions begin with an overview of the writing process, from preparation and research right through to final review and publication. Sample documents show how pieces should look and read, and close to 300 individual entries cover key points of grammar, style and spelling, and present strategies for writing more clearly, avoiding bias, eliminating cliches, and much more

"In boom times and recessions alike, finding and keeping the best talent for your organization is a demanding job. Now 14 human resources (HR) specialists are on hand to help you meet the ongoing challenge in this major reference and practical guide that encompasses every aspect of employee recruitment and retention." "Edited by a former corporate HR professional with almost 30 years' experience in the field, The AMA Handbook for Employee Recruitment and Retention shows how to attract and retain the most productive workers in an increasingly high-tech age. In particular, it will help you handle one of the most vexing problems facing organizations today, well known to readers of the "Workforce 2000" report: the growing mismatch between the types and numbers of people available to work and the types of available jobs. You'll find classic and flexible approaches to:" "The Hiring Process. Learn how to identify your needs as far in advance as possible." "Assess the demographics and skills of your applicant base. Enhance traditional recruitment methods with low-cost technology solutions. Take advantage of innovations in testing and competency-based assessment. Explore orientation programs that enhance loyalty and encourage productivity." "Compensation and Benefits. Investigate net strategies, such as two-tier wage plans and salaried plans. Evaluate executive compensation plans and alternatives. Survey the changing world of standard and flexible benefits, and learn to devise competitive yet affordable programs." "Employee Relations. Review standard and cutting-edge employee assistance programs. Examine the trends in performance appraisals. Use ongoing training and a more participative management style to retain your best employees. Improve employee communications. And help resolve work and family issues by examining alternative work options." "The AMA Handbook for Employee Recruitment and Retention also reviews legal and regulatory considerations, clarifying the measures that HR professionals can and cannot adopt. And it gives you a wealth of practical, hands-on aids including dozens of sample policies, forms, worksheets, checklists, and guidelines."--Jacket

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Compensation and motivation : maximizing employee performance with behavior-based incentive plans by Thomas J McCoy( )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1,778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Forward-thinking companies are waking up to the fact that compensation is not merely a financial cost, but a powerful tool that can boost performance and profits at all levels of the organization. Linking psychology and pay is both an art and a science, and Compensation and Motivation is the first complete guide to this cutting-edge approach." "For more than fifteen years, author Thomas J. McCoy has improved the performance of organizations through improving the performance of their employees. In these pages, he spells out the details of his innovative Behavior-Based Incentive Compensation system (BBIC). You'll learn why you should replace typical bonus and commission arrangements (which usually apply only to executives and sales personnel) with performance-oriented, self-funding plans that truly empower every employee. And, step by step, you'll learn how to identify your organization's needs; choose the best behavioral and compensation elements to address those needs; combine those elements into an incentive plan that will maximize performance and provide the best return for your compensation dollar and your management efforts; manage the sometimes difficult transition from fixed to variable compensation; balance the use of cash and noncash options; link incentive compensation with teamwork and quality improvements (such as Total Quality Management) for synergistic results; and measure your progress (using the Total Effectiveness Rating Model)." "GTE, Frito Lay, Xerox, Coming, and Vista Chemical are just a few of the corporations that have adopted the BBIC system as an attractive alternative to traditional compensation practices. This book includes candid accounts of their experiences--information and insights gleaned from McCoy's personal interviews--that will help you translate theory into practice as you design and implement your own new compensation plan."
