"Human Resource Management in Australia" presents the best of classic and contemporary HRM knowledge from the Asia-Pacific region and beyond in a thought-provoking and challenging way. The text effectively combines a solid conceptual foundation and strategic approach with an emphasis on empirical research and relevant, interesting, practical examples. This new adaptation is strongly focused on contemporary issues in HRM in Australia, such as workplace diversity; work/life balance; employee learning; the quality movement; work teams; and the impact of technology, all of which have a major impact on business and human resource practice. It pays special attention to the role of HRM in strategy formation and implementation; how organisations interact with the environment; the evaluation of HR; and managing staff turnover and retention. Specifically the book emphasises HRM as a means of creating value and gaining competitive advantage in business, and illustrates how HR strategies and practices have assisted organisations to meet global, quality, social, technological, and structural challenges. Each chapter discusses current practice and research and highlights international issues within a regional context, drawing upon local examples from the Asia Pacific region.
