|About the Book|
This book focuses on the resourcing of organisations with people, achieving a balance between academic rigour and practitioner relevance, which together with the breadth and versatility of the content, enables the book to be used effectively for modules based on the CIPD Professional Standards and HRM modules on upper Undergraduate and Masters programmes. Crucially, this third edition also goes beyond this remit by integrating coverage of the most contemporary issues in HRM, avoiding prescriptive solutions and encouraging critical evaluation, making the subject even more involving and understandable than ever before. Case studies, further reading, web links and on-line resources help to enhance the teaching and learning experience. * Matches CIPD performance indicators for the People Resourcing and People Management and Development Professional Standards.
