About the book

Armstrong's Handbook of Reward Management Practice is the definitive guide to understanding, developing and implementing effective reward. It is closely aligned to the CIPD's standard in reward management and is supported by online resources for both lecturers and students. Updated to reflect the practical implications of the most recent research and discussion on reward management, this new fifth edition includes a new chapter on computerized reward management, completely updated chapters on job evaluation, pay structures, merit pay and executive pay, and new case studies.

As with all of Armstrong's texts, Armstrong's Handbook of Reward Management Practice truly bridges the gap between academic and practitioner and is, therefore ideally suited to anyone studying for a professional qualification in HR, of which Reward is often a core part, in particular the CIPD's intermediate and advanced level qualifications. Online supporting resources include lecture slides, an instructor's manual and a student's manual complete with a glossary, bibliography and literature review.

Reviews

Michael Armstrong's latest reward textbook is an excellent resource as always. The content is easy to comprehend due to the straightforward and practical approach; with quality, up-to-date case studies, helpful tables and has everything in one place for anyone studying reward. A sound foundation for learners - both reward and non-reward practitioners.
Ray Parmenter, Associate Tutor, Acacia Learning

This book has been the reference work for this area in the UK at least for a number of years. It continues to be a fantastically detailed work covering the complexities of the reward arena to great effect. It would be a very good addition to the knowledge and resources of a manager working in the payroll/reward area especially at the policy making level. It would also be highly beneficial to the student of HR and management more widely as it has a very authentic focus and uses clear and recognisable case examples.
Dr Steve Ellis, Associate Dean, Business and Management at Regents University London, UK
