Using their extensive experience teaching and working in HRM, Banfield, Kay, and Royles succinctly convey the reality of contemporary HRM through expert academic and practical insights. Their balanced approach ensures students are able to fully grasp both the theory and practice of HRM, paving the way for success in their academic studies and future careers. With a style that has been highly praised for engaging the reader, this book is the ideal introduction to HRM for students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Key terms, research insights, and review questions help students understand the key theoretical concepts and think critically about the issues discussed. Mini-case studies (HRM insights), longer end-of-chapter case studies, and practitioner insights from real HR professionals at a variety of organizations present different scenarios and challenges experienced in the world of business. This range of learning features ensures students are exposed to both the theoretical foundations and the real-life practices of HRM. The book takes a truly holistic approach to the subject, avoiding the presentation of HRM as a separate management function, and instead seeing HR operations and considerations as an integral part of any business. The authors begin by introducing the reader to the challenges and opportunities that managing people at work can bring and the evolution of the HR function, before addressing key operational areas such as talent management, ethics, leadership, recruitment, and misconduct. They then go on to explore how these challenges are managed, with an emphasis on the practicality of enforcement but also a critical evaluation of the method. This analytical viewpoint is adopted throughout the book, encouraging students to engage with the issues inherent in HRM. This book is accompanied by the following online resources: For students: Insights and Outcomes Extension Material Glossary Web Links Multiple-choice Questions For lecturers: Test Bank Suggested Answers to Case Study Questions Suggested Answers to Review Questions Additional Case Material PowerPoint Slides Seminar Exercises

MEDIA REVIEWS
The learning features and the clear table of contents make Banfield et al. more attractive than the other HRM textbooks on the market. The critical approach to writing and various real-life examples marry the theory into practice. * Dr Shova Thapa Karki, University of Sussex *
Very few textbooks bridge the gap between theory and its application, translating concepts into practice so seamlessly. The chapters emphasise the importance of HRM and are sure to engage any reader. * Dr Aditya Jain, University of Nottingham *
