DESCRIPTION

The contemporary workplace is ever changing. In many countries the effects of economic globalization has seen the rise in zero-hour contracts, the erosion of trade union power and income inequality. In addition, high-performance work systems, business ethics and environmental sustainability are now creating tremendous challenges in many organizations. These developments play out amongst differing national and international contexts. This fluid and diverse environment makes it even more important to understand the myriad of different theories underpinning human resource management and to explore its impact on organizations, managers and workers.This engaging textbook provides an essential introduction to both the `how' and `why' of human resource management; it looks at the way organizations manage human capability, but also exposes the tensions inherent in the employment relationship, encouraging the reader to reflect critically on the realities of contemporary HRM.Building on the success of the previous five editions, this new edition includes:Two new chapters on Ethics in HRM and Green HRMNew `HRM as I see it' video interviews with real life HR managers sharing their experiences on managing people in organizations, accessible through a new interactive ebookNew `HRM and Globalization' features discussing the particular challenges faced by international organizationsNew `HRM in Practice' features exploring practical implementation of HR theoriesCoverage of contemporary themes such as line managers' roles in HRM, bullying, diversity and inequalityOver 100 new references, bringing the discussion right up to dateAn extensive online resource centre with further teaching and learning materials, accessible at www.palgravehighered.com/bg-hrm-6e.
