The academic and professional careers if many thousands of HRM students and managers have been underpinned by their reading of Torrington et al's long-standing, comprehensive and market leading text Human Resource Management. Now, this same author team has developed a brand new concise text, Fundamentals of HRM, aimed primarily at students who are studying for general business and management degrees, or who are studying HRM as part of a combined honours degree with another discipline in arts, languages, humanities or sciences. Adopting the same accessible and practical perspective on the discipline, the book focuses on the core responsibilities of people management which every manager will have to undertake and understand. A section on skills such as interviewing, coaching and performance appraisal supports this practical approach.

From the Back Cover:

Managing people at work. It’s not as easy as it sounds, and in pursuing a successful career, you’ll need to know how ...

So, let the marketing-leading authors of this brand-new text guide you to a clear understanding of the fundamental principles and practices of human resource management, focusing on key issues such as:

-          recruiting, developing and retaining talented staff

-          working within a diverse and international workforce

-          the impact of HR strategy on organisational success

The Fundamentals of Human Resource Management assumes no prior knowledge of the subject, and in 15 clearly-written chapters, over 100 short and engaging examples, and a 30-page section with a focus on core practical skills, will give you a thorough understanding of what you need to know and do to succeed in managing people at work.

Read it and see why people are saying:

“... enjoyable and accessible for those seeking to get to grips with current and future concerns in HRM for the first time... an excellent all round view of the people management issues faced by line managers every day.”
