Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary. This state-of-the-art book takes a forward-looking perspective on the field of Human Resource Management (HRM). Each contribution takes a view, or position, on the likely development of the HR function, and identifies interesting areas and subjects of research that would help address this future positioning. The book's expert contributors provide short and succinct reviews of 12 key topics in strategic HRM, including HR strategy and structure, talent management, selection, assessment and retention, employee engagement, workplace well-being, leadership, HR analytics, productivity, innovation, and globalisation. Each chapter identifies the strengths and gaps in our knowledge, maps out the important intellectual boundaries for their field, and outlines current and future research agendas and how these should inform practice. In examining these strategic topics the authors point to the key interfaces between the field of HRM and cognate disciplines, enabling researchers and practitioners to understand the models and theories that help tie this agenda together. Offering a comprehensive guide to current research and pioneering perspectives for future avenues of inquiry, this Research Agenda will be essential reading for academics, practitioners and researchers in the field of HRM.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`An excellent guide to the state of play and challenges in human resources. Especially useful for researchers and thoughtful practitioners interested in developing priorities for the future.' -- Peter Cappelli, University of Pennsylvania, US
`The field of HR has reached a critical crossroads where research must meet practice in a way that benefits both. Paul Sparrow and Cary Cooper have brought together a group of expert researchers who also have deep understanding of current HR practice to provide an HR research agenda that can effectively enable the field of HR to promote the well-being and effectiveness of both organisations and the people who work in them.' -- Patrick M. Wright, University of South Carolina, US
