Whether you're a student studying HRM or a forward-looking manager, Contemporary Human Resource Management is the book you need. Written by authors who are all experts in their fields, this fifth edition provides a thorough and critical exploration of the key functions, practices and issues in HRM today. Substantially revised and updated with new material to reflect contemporary research and debate, this text uses a clear but thought-provoking style to delve into the theoretical and practical realities of HRM. Fundamental HRM practices are covered in the first part of the book, before the second half examines issues of more recent and emerging significance. At least two case studies, exercises or activities in each chapter enable and encourage readers to identify, examine and apply key concepts in a practical context. The book does not just report but also leads the debates across this ever-changing discipline. "This is an excellent book that covers all major HRM areas. It also keeps in pace with recent advances and current discussion of HR by exploring more contemporary topics such as workplace bullying, knowledge management, flexibility or emotion at work."
