This new and engaging core textbook offers a unique line manager perspective that presents students with HRM topics and issues that they will be confronted with once they enter the world of work in a managerial role. It is a concise text that focuses on providing students with all they need to know to equip them with a comprehensive understanding of the role the (non-HR) manager plays in the day-to-day running of an organization. The author’s deep understanding and wide-ranging knowledge of the subject matter means that the text is firmly founded on the latest research, while the case studies, topical and international examples, and experiential exercises that form a fundamental part of the book ensure that theory is always clearly applied to real-world practice.
This text is an essential companion for MBA and postgraduate students who are studying modules on Human Resource Management or Managing People but who are non-HRM specialists and do not require the exhaustive detail found in other HRM texts. It is also suited for use alongside upper-level undergraduate modules on these topics on mainstream business degrees.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

This is an excellent addition to the HRM textbook market. It embraces an international outlook and a critical perspective to discuss the key issues that face managers when managing people in contemporary business organizations. There are very useful discussion questions, cases and exercises through the book, plus links to external sources and videos. – Rick Delbridge, Professor of Organizational Analysis, Cardiff Business School, UK

Finally a textbook about managing people in organizations that is not only for the HR specialist but also for general managers and those interested in management - comprehensive, differentiated, and with a global perspective. The book not only covers all relevant HRM functions succinctly but also encourages the reader to engage critically with the topics addressed. – Thomas Diefenbach, Professor in Management, Charles Darwin University, Australia

A unique Human Resource Management book aimed at business and management students and MBAs with an interest in understanding important aspects of the HR function, but not in the intricate details of it. It uses practical language instead of academic jargon and realistic examples. A refreshing change from standard HR textbooks. – Hermann Schwind, Professor Emeritus, Saint Mary’s University, Canada
