Human Resource Management in Recreation, Sport, and Leisure Services is intended for students who are being exposed to human resource management for the first time.

Topics covered in this book include the legal environment, supervision, planning and staffing, recruitment, selection, motivation, performance appraisals, compensation, grievances, ethics, and employee well-being.

Throughout the chapters, the authors attempt to provide basic information, principles, and case studies that have application to a wide variety of operations.

Whatever recreation or sport organizations students choose to go into—private or public, for-profit or nonprofit—they should be able to relate to the material presented in this book.

In summary, this textbook prepares students—whether they intend to work in commercial recreation, therapeutic recreation, outdoor recreation, governmental recreation, youth services, sports management, or event planning—with a solid foundation for human resource management.
