View all copies of this ISBN edition:

What makes a good HR strategy and how does one develop it? These are just two of the fundamental issues tackled by Strategic Human Resource Management, an innovative new text ideal for undergraduate and graduate courses in Strategic Human Resources Management (SHRM). Drawing from the latest academic research and industry insights, authors Catherine Truss, David Mankin, and Clare Kelliher provide students with a comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of managing people strategically.

Written in an exceptionally clear style, Strategic Human Resource Management adopts a user-friendly structure composed of four key parts. Part One looks at the concept of SHRM and the relevance of environmental factors; Part Two examines theories and the link between performance, the role of the HR department, and HR strategy; Part Three considers the overarching themes within SHRM, including employee engagement, corporate social responsibility, change management, knowledge management, and talent management; and Part Four identifies new forms of SHRM and key future trends in the field.

Packed with original case studies and useful pedagogical features--including end-of-chapter review questions, key concepts, and critical reflection boxes--this unique textbook offers an engaging and insightful approach to all areas of Strategic Human Resource Management. A Companion Website offers resources for both instructors and students.
