Career Development: A Human Resource Development Perspective offers a strategic framework that demonstrates the role of career development within the human resource function. It goes beyond conventional interventions and includes key topics such as diversity, work–life balance, and ethics.

Historically, the career development literature has been viewed either from the perspective of the individual (how to build a career) or from an economic perspective (how an organization benefits from developing employees). In this book, McDonald and Hite bring together the strengths of both traditions, offering an integrated framework for career development. The theoretical foundation expands on the counseling literature by incorporating the literature from human resource development and related fields. The application section reflects on the wide range of ages and working options that characterize the current and future workplace. The final section of the book addresses career development issues such as managing a diverse, global workforce; ethics; and work–life balance.

This book will help prepare human resource development students, scholars, and practitioners to develop and maintain successful career development programs, and to foster more innovative research that advances the discourse.

Simply put, this exemplary text provides a much-needed resource on an important topic. The demands of today’s work settings require that employees know how their learning activities will help advance their interests and address the performance needs of their organizations. McDonald and Hite provide a thoughtful understanding of career development, guiding HRD professionals and managers to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes. – Ronald L. Jacobs, University of Illinois, USA

McDonald and Hite's book does not disappoint. The title encompasses contemporary career theories and the latest research, making both accessible to the researcher and HRD practitioner. The authors also consider the changing nature of work, such as the role of technology and workforce demographics, and offers strategic career development advice for individuals and organizations. – Eddy Ng, PhD, Dalhousie University, Canada

This new textbook provides a concise and comprehensive analysis of the core theories and frameworks underpinning career development.Written in an engaging and accessible style, it is suited to both undergraduate and graduate-level students. It is sure to become a favourite amongst academics and students alike. – David McGuire, Edinburgh Napier University, Scotland
