Book Description

15 Mar 2007

This key textbook will become core reading for students studying a module on Human Resource Strategy at upper level Uundergraduate, MBA and Masters level.  The author team have proved successful with students and academics alike with their market leading Research Methods for Business Students and, more recently, Employee Relations.

As people and their capabilities are core to an organisations’ competitive advantage, the planning and implementing of strategies including the human resource  becomes a focus of all managers in a business.  This new text successfully integrates HR strategy with the overall business strategy, examining both how the HR function contributes to, and is affected by that strategy.

A true teaching and learning resource, the book combines cutting edge coverage of issues such as performance management and measurement, strategic reward systems, the learning organisation and managing knowledge for strategic advantage, with a wealth of examples, self-assessment exercises and encouragement to critique.

Strategic Human Resource Management – contemporary issues

by Mike Millmore, Phil Lewis, Mark Saunders, Adrian Thornhill and Trevor Morrow


As people, knowledge and talent become increasingly core to an organisation’s competitive advantage, strategic approaches to the management of human resources become ever more important.


In this exciting and definitive new guide to managing human resources strategically, the authors have:

  • Balanced the academic theory and rhetoric of SHRM with the practicalities of organisational life.

  • Provided a holistic overview of the strategic HRM territory, explaining how key HR topics can be thought about strategically.

  • Critically examined strategic practice in ten key HR disciplines and the complexities surrounding their strategic implementation.

  • Offered comprehensive exploration of the concept of strategic integration and how this can be applied in practice to specific areas of HR activity.

  • Promoted student understanding through the provision of numerous examples and case studies, key concept boxes, self-assessment questions, suggestions for follow-up study and a comprehensive glossary.
