Whether you’re a student studying HRM or a forward-looking manager, Contemporary Human Resource Management: Text and Cases (5th Edition) is the PDF ebook you need. Written by authors who are all experts in their fields, this 5th edition provides a thorough and critical exploration of the key functions, practices and issues in Human Resource Management today. Substantially revised and updated with new material to reflect contemporary research and debate, this textbook uses a clear but thought-provoking style to delve into the theoretical and practical realities of HRM. Fundamental HRM practices are covered in the 1st part of the etextbook, before the 2nd half examines issues of more recent and emerging significance. At least two case studies, exercises or activities in each chapter enable and encourage readers and HR students to examine, identify, and apply key concepts in a practical context.
The PDF ebook does not just report but also leads the debates across this ever-changing discipline. “This is an excellent ebook that covers all major HRM areas. It also keeps in pace with recent advances and current discussion of HRM by exploring more contemporary topics such as knowledge management, workplace bullying, flexibility or emotion at work.” Kristina Potocnik, Lecturer in Human Resource Management and Director, MSc Human Resource Management, University of Edinburgh
“Skilfully integrates academic content and case study applications across a range of relevant contemporary HR debates” Paula McDonald, Professor of Work and Organisation, Queensland University of Technology.
