The first of the people focussed volumes collects together 15 case studies that explore some of the most pressing and hottest issues facing modern business, from human resource (HR) to diversity. To make sure your school or university gets the most from the e-book, teachers can opt for the ‘Network Licence’.
The e-book is a great digestible way to get all the info you need, whether you’ve just started your GCSEs, deciding on your A-Levels or you’re halfway through a degree. It’s easy to relate to the topics, especially with the issues around diversity and how individuals can help influence a business. The case studies have been written alongside businesses, offering a real insight into how companies approach working patterns and representation etc.
The info in the e-book doesn’t just have to stay in the classroom; it’s a useful revision tool, one to brush up on at your own convenience or engage with in groups. If you’re already familiar with the topics in this volume why not have a look at the others.
