Product description

From the Back Cover

The expert authors of this leading textbook adopt and encourage a critical view on contemporary developments in human resource management, exploring a range of questions including:

 

·        What effect does globalisation have on the practice of human resource management?

 

·        How is HRM developing in the rapidly growing economies of China and India?

 

·        Why are skills and knowledge so crucial to an organisation’s competitive advantage?

 

 

 

The text covers the most pressing and topical themes and debates of today – HR strategy, gender and diversity, and employee rights, involvement and participation – whilst covering in depth the theory and practice of the operational aspects of HRM. The final part of the text compares trends in HRM around the world, with a particular focus on India and China, as well as the influence of multinational corporations on the practice of HRM.

 

Regular invitations to 'stop and think', questions and activities, and recommended further reading enable you to learn and research effectively. And a wealth of relevant and appealing case studies and examples include:

 

-         human resource planning for the London 2012 Olympics

-         online selection testing at Cadbury Schweppes

-         employee motivation at Harley Davidson

-         career development at soft drinks giant Britvic

-         talent spotting and the ‘corporate boot camp’ at multinational GE

 

 

Human Resource Management is written for undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA students, as well as those studying for the CIPD qualifications.
