How does HRM affect an organisation's chances of survival, its degree of financial success and its reputation in wider society?
How is HR strategy shaped within and across organisations, industries and societies, and how can managers improve it to strengthen their organisation's performance?
Strategy and Human Resource Management addresses these vital questions and more. It outlines the essential principles in strategic HRM and provides an understanding of how HR strategies vary across different contexts.
The fourth edition contains:
• Fully revised chapters, with all theoretical and practical material rigorously reviewed and updated
• An enhanced analysis of the general principles in strategic HRM
• A more in-depth coverage of HR strategy in the ‘mega contexts’ of manufacturing, services, multidivisional firms, and multinationals
