This market-leading and pioneering core textbook outlines the essential principles in strategic HRM and provides students with an understanding of how HR strategies vary across a variety of contexts. Presented in a clear and accessible style, it links HRM theory with practice to demonstrate the role HRM should play in organisational performance. In examining the impact of HR strategy on organisational success and how this is affected by key organisational, industry and societal factors, it provides a nuanced and multi-layered perspective on this significant discipline.  Redefining the framework developed in previous editions, this engaging textbook has been thoroughly updated with cutting edge research and it continues to challenge students, academics and practitioners to approach HRM from a strategic perspective.Written by world-leading experts with a combined wealth of industry, research and teaching experience, Strategy and Human Resource Management is an essential core textbook for upper-level undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA students, as well as practitioners interested in the key role that HRM plays in business success.
