Product Description

From the Back Cover

Managing employee absence, maintaining a healthy ‘work-life balance’, and developing ethical and socially responsible codes of behaviour at work: many of the most topical areas of debate in organisations are rooted in issues of human resource management.

The 6th edition of this market-leading textbook provides detailed exploration and analysis of these contemporary issues, as well as providing comprehensive coverage of all the core elements of HRM. There is a range of useful features to engage the reader’s interest and assist in learning from the text:

  • seven Focus on Skills sections develop specific areas of practical HR expertise
  • short Window on Practice illustrations put theory into recognisable context
  • individual and group Activities encourage critical reflection and review
  • practice Examination Questions at the end of each chapter


A companion website at provides extra cases and articles taken from the Financial Times, self-assessment questions for each chapter and links to other useful websites.



This book is suitable for students taking HRM modules on both undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes, as well as for professional qualifications.



Derek Torrington is Emeritus Professor of Management, University of Management. Laura Hall and Stephen Taylor are both Senior Lecturers in Human Resource Management at Manchester Metropolitan University as well as national examiners for the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.



The real life examples, quotes and case studies, together with the reference to the web-site links, will undoubtedly help to enhance the suitability of this text to a range of courses.  I will certainly recommend this text to my students.


Kirsten Krauth, Coventry Business School



I have used this text over many years, both in the UK on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and overseas on MBA programmes, and have come to rely on its comprehensive mix of academic and practical insights into the world of HR. It is easy to follow, engaging in style, and keeps the reader’s interest up.


John Martin, Fellow of Hull University
