This classic textbook covers everything you need to know about Human Resource Management, whether you're a student building your knowledge or an HR manager looking for best practice tools to enhance your performance.
Armstrong's Handbook of Human Resource Management Practice is the classic text for all students and practitioners of HRM. Providing 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, including performance, reward, employee engagement and HR policy. This fully revised and updated thirteenth edition contains an entirely new part covering the increasingly important subject of international human resource management. Other new chapters have been added on rewarding special groups and on employment law, and the chapters on HRM, motivation and engagement have been completely revised.
Armstrong's Handbook of Human Resource Management Practice has also been brought up to date by reference to the findings of a number of significant research projects and other investigations of how HRM operates in practice. Comprehensive online support material for the instructor, student and practitioner is provided, offering a complete resource for teaching and self-learning. Online supporting resources include
lecture slides, an instructor's manual, a student's manual complete with multiple-choice practice questions and case studies and a glossary of terms.
Topical, comprehensive, well-informed and student-friendly

Praise for the previous edition:
Human resources professionals will find Michael Armstrong's book practical, helpful and relevant. It discusses all facets of current practice, including such relatively new developments as e-learning and recruiting, and it discusses how you can help your organization implement change. The book would make an excellent college text, since it covers HRM's evolution, principles, theories, practice, research, job descriptions and more. ...[T]hose in the field will derive a great deal of value from this book.
