"If I were to make a list of scholars who we should hire to assemble current thinking on human resource management in the nonprofit sector, Sowa and Word would be at the top of my list. They have organized an impressive panoply of nonprofit sector scholars who represent our best current thinking on strategic human resource management." - Mark Hager, Arizona State University, USA "Comprehensive in scope, Sowa and Word cover critical topics ranging from how to attract the best and brightest employees and volunteers into the sector, to managing and cultivating diversity, to applications of technology in human resource management, and everything in between. This book serves as a valuable resource that I look forward to sharing with my students undertaking careers in the nonprofit sector." - Kelly LaRoux, The University of Chicago at Illinois, USA "The Nonprofit Human Resource Management Handbook is an excellent confluence of the state-of-art research on human resources in nonprofit organizations and the practical matters confronting nonprofit managers seeking to effectively deploy their human capital. Sowa and Word and their outstanding colleagues have compiled an accessible, yet rigorous, resource that benefits both scholars and practitioners by highlighting critical issues that nonprofit organizations must successfully navigate to recruit and retain talented workers in the current environment. This will certainly be a much-used textbook in nonprofit management courses. I wish I would have had this book when I was a student!" - Rebecca Nesbit, University of Georgia, USA
