The Encyclopedia of Human Resource Management is an authoritative and comprehensive reference resource with almost 400 entries on core HR areas and key concepts. From age discrimination, to zero hours contracts, each entry reflects the views of an expert and authoritative author.

The terms included vary from singular concepts such as performance appraisal and industrial conflict, to organisational behaviour terms including organisational culture and commitment; and broader management terms such a resourcing and management development. Each entry provides a list of references and further reading to enable the reader to gain a deeper awareness and understanding of each topic.

This book is an ideal companion to a standard HRM textbook, and both undergraduate and postgraduate students will find it to be of value. It will also be useful for academic researchers, HR practitioners and policy specialists looking for a succinct expert summary of key HR concepts.

The international team they have gathered together is stellar-this is a must buy for all HR professionals and researchers.' --Sir Cary Cooper, CBE, 50th Anniversary Professor of Organizational Psychology and Health, Manchester Business School, University of Manchester, UK

'This encyclopedia will be an invaluable companion for HR executives, students and academics wanting to find succinct definitions, summaries and debates about a plethora of terms. These range from big questions and areas of interest to technical terms in pay systems, staffing, contracts of all sorts - in fact beyond any other encyclopedia. The 300+ entries are written by subject experts - nearly 200 of them - cross referencing helps track associated terms, and the latest publications on each topic are fully listed. Invaluable!' --John Purcell, University of Bath, UK

'The editors have sourced contributions from leaders on each topic. They cover everything from A-Z - specialist topics such as age discrimination through to zero hours contracts, matters of policy, and leading practices. The keywords for entries and reviews are easy to follow and the cross-referencing very useful. An excellent way to keep yourself up to date on all the latest issues.' --Paul Sparrow, Lancaster University Management School, UK
