Short Cuts:

Recruiting, Interviewing, Selecting & Orienting New Employees by Diane Arthur, AMACOM Books, New York City, $59.95

Here’s enough information packed into the third edition of this 367-page book to teach a course on the hiring process for human resources managers. But for those not in HR who hire staff, information is distilled into layman’s terms and organized to let readers easily skip to the pages that address their particular needs. Fourteen chapters cover everything from workplace diversity, recruitment sources (including electronic) and interview questions to making the final choice and getting the new hire off to a good start.

Smart staffing: how to hire, reward, and keep Top employees for your growing company by Wayne Outlaw, Upstart Publishing Company, Chicago, $19.95

Smart Staffing covers much of the same territory, but in a more portable 256-page softcover. (It’s significantly lighter on the wallet, too.) Each chapter includes appropriate checklists and sample forms, and ends with a helpful list of frequently asked questions and their answers.
