About the book

Contemporary Issues in Human Resource Management is uniquely holistic in its approach to advanced HRM and takes the reader logically through a wide variety of practical issues and functions that affect HR practitioners. Topics addressed include competition and choice, people and skills, regulation and public policy, social trends, engaging people, managing an international workforce, and developing and implementing HR strategies. It is an essential one-stop resource that clearly evaluates the issues surrounding the way people are managed, offers insight into the future development of HRM, and provides the theoretical framework that will enable success in practice.

Contemporary Issues in Human Resource Management is packed full of engaging features, such as chapter-by-chapter learning outcomes, case studies, critical reflections, questions and activities designed to actively engage you with the material addressed and summaries of key points to aid learning. Taking you step-by-step through the aspects of HR management so vital for the practice of HR within an organisation, Stephen Taylor's innovative textbook is ideal for students taking an HRM module at undergraduate or Master's level, as well as students taking other modules that explore people management in relation to the wider business context. Online resources are offered to complement the material and include annotated web links, for a wealth of useful sources and information to develop your understanding, multiple choice questionnaires, PowerPoint slides for tutors to design their programmes, along with Lecturer’s guides.
