Abstract:

"Strategy and Human Resource Management, 2nd edition, provides a critical yet highly accessible account of the strategic role of human resource management within organisations. Building upon the strengths of the best-selling first edition, this new edition expands its discussion of goals in HRM, builds a new typology of HR systems, contains new material on organisational culture and climate, and more fully examines HRM in services and the public sector. Updated to include the latest research and developments in the field, it continues to challenge students to critically assess the role and contribution of human resources to organisations." "This text is ideal for upper level undergraduates and postgraduate students of HRM, as well as MBA students. It is also an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the role of HRM in business success."--Jacket.
