About the book

Critical Issues in Human Resource Management will enable all HR students to take a critical approach to HR issues. Outlining the influences and shapers of HR strategy including ethics, managing in different national contexts, employment relations, politics, governance and finance, this book provides students with a full understanding of the complexities of HRM strategy and what the implications of these are. There is also crucial discussion of critical issues in the processes and practice of HRM including the dilemmas of onshoring and offshoring, gender equality, challenging institutional racism and disability discrimination in the modern workplace to enable readers to think deeply and critically about these issues.

Critical Issues in Human Resource Management also includes discussion of the application of HRM in different sectors such as manufacturing, the public sector, the private sector and not-for-profit organizations. This will enable HR students to examine HR practices in specific industries and to think about how issues might be dealt with differently in different sectors, rather than assuming that best practice is universal. Online resources include a lecturer guide with additional seminar activities and discussion topics, powerpoint slides and annotated weblinks for students to enable them to develop an astute, nuanced and critical approach to human resource management
