Bridge the gap between theory and practice with this textbook for foundation students and undergraduates that provides a clear overview of HRM.
Introduction to Human Resource Management is a comprehensive and accessible guide to the subject of HRM. Drawing on the authors' experiences in both the public and private sectors, and underpinned by academic theory, this textbook follows the logical sequence of the employment cycle and shows how human resource management plays out in practice. It covers organizational culture, the role of the HR practitioner, HR planning, recruitment and selection, talent management, L&D, motivation and performance, health and safety, diversity and equality, employment law, change management and handling and managing information.
With a range of pedagogical features, including contemporary case studies and review questions, Introduction to Human Resource Management maps to the CIPD Level 3 Foundation Certificate in HR Practice and is also ideal for foundation and undergraduate students encountering HRM for the first time. This fully updated 3rd edition has been revised and expanded to include the rise of social media and e-recruitment, the ideas of employer branding, onboarding and socialization for attracting and retaining staff, new methods for delivering learning and development events and updates on legislation. Online supporting resources include an instructor's manual and lecture slides.
Holistic, integrated coverage of CIPD standards, particularly for those who want to delve deeper into the wider concepts having an impact on the contemporary HR function. Varied case studies, activities and clearly defined concepts are great for the independent learner.
