Compensation, 11th Edition, by Milkovich, Newman and Gerhart is the market-leading text in this course area. It offers instructors current research material, in depth discussion of topics, integration of Internet coverage, excellent pedagogy, and a truly engaging writing style. The authors consult with leading businesses, have won teaching awards, and publish in the leading journals. This text examines the strategic choices in managing total compensation. The total compensation model introduced in chapter one serves as an integrating framework throughout the book. The authors discuss major compensation issues in the context of current theory, research, and real-business practices. Milkovich, Newman and Gerhart strive to differentiate between beliefs and opinions from facts and scholarly research. They showcase practices that illustrate new developments in compensation practices as well as established approaches to compensation decisions. Time after time, adopters relay stories of students getting job offers based on the knowledge they learned from this book.

SCR supports Christmas in a box

Dear Stxmasinaboxudents,
As in previous years, the IUBH participates in the “Weihnachten im Schuhkarton”-collection (Christmas in a box) again this winter. People pack shoe boxes with little gifts for little children with things such as warm pieces of clothing, toys, writing tools, stuffed animals,… These gift boxes will be sent to children in need in Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, Belarus, and many others.

We, the SCR, want to support this initiative by providing the students with an additional chance to contribute, in case they do not have the time to prepare a box themselves. The idea is to collect money and then pack the gifts in the name of the students. Little boxes for donations and additional information material can be found at the mensa, anno, Charly’s and the Student’s Office until Monday, Nov. 11th, 2 pm.

Help us help children in need!

Your SCR
