Abstract:

"Human Resource Management in a Business Context locates HRM and other perspectives of people management in a framework focused on the needs of business studies students. It provides a thorough and comprehensive overview of all the key aspects of people management using numerous real examples from actual business situations. The text uses high profile companies to bring the concepts to life, including IBM and Ford Motor Company, and highlights cultural implications of HRM with an illustrative case study of South Africa. This practical, rather than prescriptive approach allows students to understand the issues without getting lost in operational details."--Jacket.
