2nd February 2017 - Armstrong’s Handbook of Human Resource Management Practice
New Edition of Bestselling Text for HRM Students and Professionals
Armstrong’s Handbook of Human Resource Management Practice is the bestselling, definitive text for all HRM students and professionals. A complete resource for understanding and implementing HR in relation to the needs of the business as a whole, it contains in-depth coverage of all the key areas essential to the HR function such as employment law, employee relations, learning and development, performance and reward.
Accessible and to the point as ever, the fully updated 14th edition includes emerging theory and practice, embracing the most current thinking on engagement, talent management and leadership development. Armstrong’s Handbook of Human Resource Management Practice now includes updated case studies and references as well as coverage of new approaches to topics such as job evaluation and pay structures.
Described as ‘the gold standard when it comes to HRM texts’ by Connie Nolan, Senior Lecturer at Canterbury Christ Church University, the book is also endorsed by Dr Janet Astley, Senior Lecturer at York St John Business School, who says ‘Armstrong’s approach to HRM is sufficiently academic but tempered with good practice and common sense’. It has been dubbed ‘the HR bible’ by one Amazon reviewer.
