Additional data are presented based on evidence from other significant actors such as agency employment firms and trade unions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
... wonderful example of an approach to the study of complexity in organisational change in employment ... The use of verbatim quotes from employees (including managers) is excellent as is the deep description and analysis of the nature of change. While many writers refer rather vaguely to trends in 'globalisation' or 'work flexibility' the great strength of this book is the way the authors give real meaning and flesh to these terms and many others. * Industrial Relations Journal *
The case study research is extensive, detailed and precise. Its step-by-step, layer-by-layer presentation of what it found is an invaluable resource for reference, and surprisingly accessible for this purpose. * Work, Employment and Society *
Managing Employment Change offers a diverse, innovative insight into the complexities and simple truths of contemporary employment that one might expect from over two years of in-depth empirical research, presented through the combined expertise of its authors ... Whether our perspective upon an organization be from within it or from the outside, Managing Employment Change enhances our vision so that we are able to take an honest look at what is possible in managing the changing reality of work. * Work, Employment and Society *
