A caselet is an important teaching aid for the faculty to adapt teaching style to the needs of the situation. While discussing the topics of management teaching and learning, experts distinguish between the ‘Sage on the Stage’ and the ‘Guide on the Side’ approaches. Comprehensive cases are quite useful while following the ‘Guide on the Side’ approach in facilitating a collective learning experience. However, a faculty member may choose the ‘Sage on the Stage’ approach due to topic-specific, class-specific, or faculty-specific factors. In such situations, comprehensive cases can be replaced with caselets to help the learner apply the concepts gathered from the lectures. In short, while cases may be used as a substitute for lectures, caselets may be used as a supplement to lectures. Welcome to The HR Caselets Handbook written by Satya Sidhartha Panda.

This book is designed to provide comprehensive caselets with solutions for HR specialization for MBA & PGDM students, first-time managers, and anyone interested in understanding and addressing real-world challenges in the field of human resources. This book aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice by presenting a collection of caselets that reflect the diverse and evolving landscape of human resource management. These caselets are carefully curated to simulate the challenges encountered in the workplace, allowing readers to apply theoretical knowledge to practical situations.
