From the Back Cover:

Strategic Human Resource Management – contemporary issues

by Mike Millmore, Phil Lewis, Mark Saunders, Adrian Thornhill and Trevor Morrow

 

As people, knowledge and talent become increasingly core to an organisation’s competitive advantage, strategic approaches to the management of human resources become ever more important.

 

In this exciting and definitive new guide to managing human resources strategically, the authors have:

  • Balanced the academic theory and rhetoric of SHRM with the practicalities of organisational life.

  • Provided a holistic overview of the strategic HRM territory, explaining how key HR topics can be thought about strategically.

  • Critically examined strategic practice in ten key HR disciplines and the complexities surrounding their strategic implementation.

  • Offered comprehensive exploration of the concept of strategic integration and how this can be applied in practice to specific areas of HR activity.

  • Promoted student understanding through the provision of numerous examples and case studies, key concept boxes, self-assessment questions, suggestions for follow-up study and a comprehensive glossary. 

 

"An excellent text! The authors should be congratulated on their thorough coverage of the material and the interesting perspectives of the themes."  - John Gould-Williams, Cardiff Business School

 

"This book offers a truly wide choice of case studies from different sectors and countries." - Chris Marshall, Principal Lecturer HRM University of Sunderland.
