Product Description

From the Author

This book is intended to provide a comprehensive account of the critical issues in Human Resource Management (HRM), taking the reader from an introductory level to a relatively sophisticated understanding of an increasingly important business topic. We will see that there is no universal agreement on the meaning of HRM. In fact, there are varying and contradictory models. Yet they embody common elements that distinguish them from previous approaches to managing people – specifically, personnel management. The book takes a distinctive approach, locating the subject of human resource management and its various perspectives within a business context. We recognize that readers will come from a variety of backgrounds, that some will become HR specialists but that many are interested in the relationship between human resource management and other business functions. This is not a ‘cookbook’ of best practices: it is firmly focused on human resource management in the real world. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
The 2nd edition of this book preserves all the best qualities of the original edition while adding considerably to its international content. New chapters have been added, including discussion on high-performance organizations, knowledge management, international legislative frameworks, human capital, HRM in smaller organizations, entrepreneurship, pay and compensation, work-life balance, employee involvement and stress. Numerous case studies and examples are taken from Australia, Canada, South Africa, Asia and Europe as well as the UK and US. All-in-all, a more balanced and authoritative, general HR textbook than the first edition but still uniquely focused on HR in its business context.

HASH(0xa158a9d8) out of 5 stars An excellent, unique introduction to HRM. July 19 1998
By stern@primenet.com, Yvette Borcia, Author, Stern's SourceFinder: The Master Directory to HR and Management Information & Sources - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book distinguishes itelf from other HRM introductory texts buy focusing on the integration of HR with the business and organization. Its breadth and depth are very impressive. The text has an international quality, providing insights into circumstances and issues in many countries. Be aware, however, that because it is written by an emeritus professor in the UK, sections relating to law, and many specific references, are limited in applicability; if this is a problem, it can be worked around for students of other nations. Overall, this is an excellent introduction to human resource management. Every chapter includes further reading, review questions and problems for discussion.
