About the book
Sustainable human resource management (HRM) processes and practices are not a nice-to-have, they're a need-to-have to benefit employees, organizations, societies and the environment.
Sustainability has been highlighted by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) as one of the key trends influencing the HR profession so Sustainable Human Resource Management is crucial reading for undergraduate and postgraduate HR students. It explains what sustainable HRM is, what the benefits of sustainable HRM are as well as the dangers of unsustainable HRM. It is full of examples throughout to show how sustainable HRM works in practice including how it can be used to improve candidate attraction, retention and employee engagement as well as how it can improve productivity, employer branding, company culture and drive both efficiency and business performance. There is also coverage of how sustainable HRM can be introduced and measured as well as specific guidance on sustainable HRM in different parts of the world, green HRM, responsible business, ethics and sustainable HRM as a business strategy.
Sustainable Human Resource Management is written specifically for third year undergraduate and postgraduate students with pedagogical features in each chapter including learning objectives, key concept definitions, skill check boxes, workshop discussion articles, chapter summaries, study questions and key readings. Online resources include a sample course handbook and PowerPoint slides.
About the authors
- The United Nations invites us to consider sustainability in development efforts across micro-individual, meso-organisational and macro-national levels. Rafal Sitko's book on sustainable HRM responds to the urgent need to consider stakeholder-based sustainability in framing human resource management policies and practices. The sustainable HRM volume is an unmissable read for scholars who are interested in HRM from a perspective which is wider and wiser, upholding the common good beyond narrow measures of human performance.
