Overview for Human Resource Management 21st Century Challenges for the Future
This Short Introduction to Human Resource Management provides a concise treatment of the key elements of HRM using an innovative risk-management approach. It emphasizes the importance of the decisions processes and choices organizations make about managing people and shows how workforce management directly affects organizational outcomes. Designed specifically for students taking their first introductory module in human resource management, this textbook combines the academic and practitioner perspectives to produce a balanced introduction to the subject. This approach explores how HR is actually practiced and experienced in the workplace, which overcomes the idealistic and partial insights of many textbooks. By taking a truly holistic approach to the subject this text avoids the presentation of HRM as a separate management function and instead presents HR processes and challenges as an integral part of any business. It provides guidance for managers on how to make better human capital decisions in order to achieve strategic success more effectively.
