Overview

This unique text covers the key issues in North American human resources today. Providing an overview of new and emerging issues in North American Human Resource Management (HRM), the chapters are divided into three parts. The first part examines how changes in the business environment have affected HRM; the second part looks at topics that have escalated in importance over the last few years; and the third analyzes topics that have recently emerged as concerns.

Each chapter is authored by a leading figure in the field and features case vignettes to provide practical illustrations of the points in hand. The chapters also conclude with guidelines to help HR professionals deal with the issues raised.

A Companion Website featuring online lecturer and student resources is available for this text and can be visited at www.routledge.com/textbooks/0415396867.

Managing Human Resources in North America is a core text for current issues in HRM courses in North America and a supplementary text for students studying international HRM in other countries. It will be invaluable reading for all those studying HRM in North America or currently working in the field.
