Product Description

From the Back Cover

This bestselling text offers an authoritative yet readable introduction to human resource management. Exploring a broad range of perspectives, styles and arguments, the expert authors take a rigorous and critical approach that makes contemporary developments in human resource management accessible and interesting.

Now in its sixth edition, Human Resource Management examines some of the key issues and debates of today:

·        What is human resource management and how does it affect organisational performance?

·        How do organisations develop and reward their employees – and leaders of tomorrow?

·        How does globalisation affect HRM, and what are the trends in HRM around the world?

This text also provides comprehensive and in-depth coverage of the theory and practice of HRM, including the latest research. Regular invitations to ‘stop and think’, questions and activities, and a wealth of relevant and appealing case studies will help you to learn and research effectively. Human Resource Management is written for undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA students, and is also suitable for those studying for CIPD qualifications.

Human Resource Management: A Contemporary Approach
solid
This is a good book - not perfect but still good.

I had to review this and the Torrington & Hall book recently for a course I was leading - I chose this book, although it was close.

It's very well laid out, the cases are short and punchy. review questions are useful. the "stop and think" features are helpful.

in some parts its excessively psychological - the two chapters by Audrey Collin on "context" and "learning" add little. Both of these belong in an OB book. HR managers are not teachers.

the book is academic, slightly more so than torrington, but personally i like this, it is well grounded in research, so it will take you on to masters level.

chapter 16 could also be lost.

like most academic texts, its too big, and i long for the days when 300 pages was all an author needed, rather than to 700-900 which is the norm now.

chapters 1 and 2 are excellent, a very good intro to all the debates in the field.

well worth consideration.

Bought as part of my HRM module. Used this book a lot, easy to read and understand. I got 72% so must have been on the right tracks! A lot of my information was from this book and I particularly liked her chapter on the origins of HRM, it all became clear when I had read it :-)

The book itself is in OK condition, does the job. The Index wasn't on properly. As if someone stapled it on with the text slightly bent and didn't originally come with the book.

Although the Index isn't the main part of the book, everything else is good to use.
