This handbook is an introduction to Human Resource Management, with a clear focus and without sidetracks. It discusses topics on recruitment and selection, provides answers to how socialisation and leadership can be applied to improve performance and helps to deal with dismissal of staff. The handbook is aimed at practitioners, with practical hints, examples and advice, that are always grounded by science. In today's organisations, HR occurs both within and outside of the HR-department. Just think about the daily leadership that is exerted by direct supervisors. This handbook therefore has two main goals. First, it provides its readers with the knowledge that can help them to become better employees and supervisors in organisations. Second, it provides the readers with a sufficiently strong background that enables them to study domains of HRM more in-depth. The handbook thus not only focuses on academic and professional bachelor students, but is open to everyone who works for an organisation.

Since its original publication in 2000, this text has been intended for students studying HRM for the first time. Its major features are its comprehensive and wide-ranging nature which deals with all major aspects of HRM in a down to earth and practical way, alongside the necessary theoretical underpinning. The key strength is its accessibility to students new to the subject area where it combines a clear explanation with numerous relevant and interesting cases and comments. The range and nature of HRM is fully illustrated by a combination of real life and fictional case studies which heighten awareness of key issues involved in HRM today. This new edition will continue to be appropriate for undergraduate courses, especially first and second year students studying an HRM degree but also for post-graduate courses where many students are new to the field of HRM. It continues to be divided into 12 chapters to provide one topic a week on a modular course, but it may be extended into two semesters. It has been revised to place a greater emphasis on the role of human resources in improving organisational and employee performance. These revisions include the greater use of technology in resourcing and development areas, the change of emphasis from ‘recruitment/selection’ to ‘talent management’ and the use of social networking developments as an aid to HR management. Recent legal developments will also be covered including those relating to age discrimination and the regulation of agency workers. It will be supported by a supplement for tutors and additional web-based cases and other materials for tutors and students.

The concept of sustainability is important for companies both in the case of SMEs and worldwide multinational companies. Some key factors to help a company achieve its sustainability objectives are based on human resource management. Sustainable human resource management is a typical cross-functional task that becomes increasingly important at the strategic level of a company. Industry 4.0 technologies, Internet of Things, and competitive demands, as signs of globalization, have led to significant changes across the organizational structures and human resource strategies of companies. The increasing importance of sophisticated human resource strategies in the life of companies and the intention to find optimal design and operation strategies for sustainable human resource management were a motivation for launching this book. This book offers a selection of papers which explain the impact of smart human resource management on economy. Authors from 14 countries published working examples and case studies resulting from their research in this field.

Get 12 months FREE access to an interactive eBook when purchasing the paperback* Reflecting the global nature of the workplace with its use of real world examples and case studies, Nick Wilton’s book is not another ′How to′ of HRM in practice, but goes beyond the prescriptive approach to the practice of strategic HRM and encourages critical reflection to prepare students for the issues and dilemmas they could face in their careers. Providing an introduction to the management of people in work organizations, it seeks to outline the purpose and operation of HRM activities in the ′real world′, whilst situating practice in the context of associated debates and controversies played out in the parallel field of academic study. It adopts a critical perspective on the study and practice of HRM to provide the reader with an understanding not only of the potential for HRM to contribute to both improved organizational performance and individual well-being in the workplace, but also why it very often fails to achieve either of these positive outcomes and suggests that the management of people is not the exclusive preserve of HR specialists, but an area of interest or concern for all organizational actors. The new edition comes packed with features that encourage readers to engage and relate theory to practice including: - Management skills and attributes boxes outlining the required competencies of line managers and HR practitioners - HR in practice boxes illustrating how HRM theory works in real world practice - Ethical insights presenting ethical considerations for budding practitioners - Global insights highlighting practices around the world - Research insights inviting students to explore further academic research - Case Studies and Examples offering a more in-depth look at HRM across a variety of organizations - A free interactive eBook* featuring author videos, web-links interactive multiple choice questions, free SAGE journal articles, extended case studies and other relevant links, allowing access on the go and encouraging learning and retention whatever the reading or learning style. Aimed at students across the academic spectrum, whether studying on a specialist HRM or CIPD program of study, a generalist business and management programme or studying HRM as part of a programme in an unrelated discipline (such as engineering or humanities). *Interactivity only available through Vitalsource eBook included as part of paperback product (ISBN 9781473954199).
