The idea of human resource management has become topical and controversial. The term suggests that people in any organization are an asset to be upgraded and fully utilized rather than merely a variable cost to be minimized. This in turn implies that the way in which people are managed is a matter of crucial strategic concern. Increased international competition has produced various initiatives world-wide for new approaches to management, in particular human resource management. This searching set of interpretations, first published in 1983, will be of interest to serious practitioners and students alike.

This fully revised and updated 2nd edition of Human Resource Management: A Global and Critical Perspective builds on the previous edition’s success to bring an even sharper exploration of HRM in a real-world global context. With a critical approach that is woven into the chapters and encourages students to question assumptions in HRM, there is a consistent focus on the impact of globalization, the ways in which theory has addressed the implications of a globalized workforce, and the way HRM works in multinational corporations. Boasting a truly global orientation which is removed from the typically western-centric approach, this textbook draws on the expert knowledge of chapter authors from around the world, combining international case studies with a strong offering of pedagogical features. Yet while this textbook is designed to engage the student and elicit independent thought, it also adopts a rigorous academic level which is grounded in the very latest research. New to this edition: Brand new chapters: Talent Management; International Assignments; Managing Global and Migrant Workers; Sustainable HRM Revised and refreshed international case studies, including a mini-case at the start of each chapter and end of chapter case studies focused on an array of diverse, mostly non-western, regions of the world An innovative offering of pedagogical features, including critical discussions, action-orientated activities designed to engage students in transferable skill development, ‘In the News’ segments exploring contemporary issues, and ‘Stop and Reflect’ boxes to encourage critical thinking skills This is a core textbook for general business and management degrees, specialist HRM degrees, and international business degrees. It is an ideal companion for students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Sound HRM practices matter—they are a sine qua non of effective governance in democratic government—equally so at the local, regional, state and national levels of government. The NASPAA (Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration) accreditation standards demand critical competencies for public managers that are vital to human resource managers and supervisors at all levels. These competencies include: skills to lead and manage in public governance; to participate in and contribute to the policy process; to analyze, synthesize, think critically, solve problems and make decisions; to articulate and apply a public service perspective; and to communicate and interact productively with a diverse and changing workforce and citizenry. This second edition of Human Resource Management is designed specifically with these competencies in mind to: Introduce and explore the fundamental purposes of human resource management in the public service and consider the techniques used to accomplish these purposes Provide exercises to give students practice for their skills after being introduced to the theory, foundation, and practices of public and nonprofit sector HRM Facilitate instruction of the material by introducing important topics and issues with readings drawn from the professional literature Provide information and examples demonstrating the interrelatedness of many of the topics in public sector HRM and the trends shaping public and nonprofit management, especially diversity, ethics, and technology. Demonstrate and describe differences among HRM practices in public, for-profit and nonprofit organizations, and between the levels of government. Human Resource Management is organized to provide a thorough discussion of the subject matter with extensive references to relevant literature and useful teaching tools. Thus, students will consider the issues, purposes, and techniques of HRM and conceptualize how varied their roles are, or will be, whether a personnel specialist in a centralized system or a supervisor managing in one of the increasingly common decentralized systems. Each chapter includes a thorough review of the principles and practices of HRM (including the why and the how), selected readings, important themes, diverse examples, key terms, study questions, applied exercises, case studies, and examples of forms and processes would-be managers will encounter in their roles.

A detailed overview of human resource management from a strategic perspective is provided in this text. To illustrate this approach, a human resource management model is tied to the strategic planning process, and then this model is utilized throughout the book to explain how subjects interrelate. By introducing key definitions, concepts and background in the beginning of the text, students have a foundation for understanding the later discussions on strategic management, strategic planning, portfolio planning, and strategy-human resource linkages. Also emphasized is human resource issues outside of the human resource departments. Subsequent chapters review the relationships among various human resource management activities, the organization's strategies, and the company's external influences, including labour force characteristics, governmental regulations, labour unions, and cultural variations. This text also evaluates how to align corporate strategy and human resource practice by considering various approaches to cost/benefit analysis and the costing of human research activities.

The construction sector is one of the most complex and problematic arenas within which to manage people. As a result, the applicability of much mainstream human resource management (HRM) theory to this industry is limited. Indeed, the operational realities faced by construction organizations mean that all too often the needs of employees are subjugated by performance concerns. This has potentially dire consequences for those who work in the industry, for the firms that employ them and ultimately, for the prosperity and productivity of the industry as a whole. In this new edition of their leading text, Andrew Dainty and Martin Loosemore have assembled a collection of perspectives which critically examine key aspects of the HRM function in the context of contemporary construction organizations. Rather than simply update the previous edition, the aim of this second edition is to provide a more critical commentary on the ways in which the industry addresses the HRM function and how this affects those who work within the industry. To this end, the editors have gathered contributions from many of the leading thinkers within construction HRM to critique the perspectives presented in the first edition. Each contributor either tackles specific aspects of the HRM function, or provides a critical commentary on industry practice. The authors explain, using real-life case studies, the ways in which construction firms respond to the myriad pressures that they face through their HRM practices. Together the contributions encourage the reader to rethink the HRM function and its role in defining the employment relationship. This provides essential reading for students of construction and project management, and reflective practitioners who are interested in theoretically informed insights into industry practice and its implications.
