    schema:description "This new, completely revised edition of Stephen Bach's successful graduate text includes new chapters from outside Britain as part of a more thorough internationalization of the text. As adopting institutions continue to shift their education portfolios from undergraduate to postgraduate degrees, the demand for advanced texts suited to specialist MSc programmes has increased. Many universities have established MSc programmes in HRM and this new edition also reflects the trend back towards year-long in-depth modules rather than semester-based modules. The 5th edition builds on the strengths of the previous editions. The comprehensive, authoritative set of essays by leading experts in the field provides more detailed and analytical coverage than the mainstream treatments of HRM. At the same time it remains accessible to a wide variety of audiences. As in previous editions, the authors bring an integrated multi-disciplinary approach to analysing HRM, the contemporary study of work and employment. The starting point of Managing Human Resources is a recognition that HRM practice and firm performance are influenced by a variety of institutional arrangements that extend beyond the firm. The chapters incorporate analysis of employees and other stakeholders as well as the implications for organizational performance."@en ;
