The fully revised and updated second edition of this core textbook builds on the previous edition's success to bring an even sharper exploration of HRM in a real-world global context. With a critical approach that is woven into the chapters and encourages students to question assumptions in HRM, there is a consistent focus on the impact of globalization, the ways in which theory has addressed the implications of a globalized workforce, and the way HRM works in multinational corporations. Boasting a truly global orientation, this textbook draws on the expert knowledge of chapter authors from around the world, combining international case studies with a strong offering of pedagogical features. While adopting a rigorous academic approach, the book is also designed to engage students and elicit independent thought.
This is an ideal core textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying on general business and management degrees, specialist HRM degrees, and internationalbusiness degrees. In addition, this an important supplementary text for International HRM modules and HRM modules on MBA programmes.
