Develop the knowledge and skills to take on an HRM research project with this bestselling text.
Fully mapped to the CIPD Level 7 Advanced module on Investigating a Business Issue from an HR Perspective, Research Methods in Human Resource Management is a key resource for anyone undertaking a research report. It covers the planning and execution of HRM research projects, from investigating and researching HR issues to designing and implementing research and then evaluating and reviewing the results.
Filled with international examples to provide a global perspective, this fully updated 3rd edition of Research Methods in Human Resource Management balances theoretical frameworks and practical guidance. It includes increased attention to methodology issues, more real-life examples and a discussion of ethics in line with current research and practice. 'Review and Reflect' sections at the end of each chapter help apply learning to personal experience and professional development, and multiple-choice questions and a glossary of terms help students understand the key concepts. Online supporting resources include an instructor's manual, lecture slides and annotated web links.
This book is everything that a student of HR could need to successfully complete a research project. Clearly and eloquently written with a wealth of useful real world examples, it walks a new researcher through the entire process and I would not hesitate in recommending this to my students.

This is a very student-friendly text, written in a very accessible manner to help students survive the dissertation experience. Through the use of case examples, students and first-time researchers are provided with excellent guidance on how to craft research questions, find relevant literature, collect and analyse data and formulate conclusions and recommendations. This text demystifies the research process and is suited to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. I would definitely recommend it.
