A leading textbook in its field, Human Resource Management at Work provides a clear introduction to the multiple meanings of HRM and the relationship between strategy and HRM. Covering international and comparative HRM as well as HRM and performance, it is filled with case studies and activities to bring the subject to life while summarizing the major forces shaping HRM and looking at the principal theoretical frameworks. Ideal for business and HR students taking a critical look at HRM theory and practice, this fully updated 6th edition of Human Resource Management at Work combines the latest research with real-world examples. Linking theory with practice, it encourages a critical awareness of HRM through case studies, real-world examples and activities. Now with a closer analysis of the forces shaping HRM at work and the growth of insecure work, it also features new case studies, an updated literature review and a stronger emphasis on International and Comparative HRM. Knowledge intensive firms, employee engagement and talent management are discussed in detail as well, as is the role of bodies such as 'Engage for Success' in promoting new methods of working. Online supporting resources include an instructor's manual and lecture slides.
