Few would disagree with the principle that successful achievement of an organization's overall strategic objectives is bound up with the design and implementation of appropriate human resource strategies (HRS). Yet many questions remain about what is entailed in implementing effective HRS. This volume brings together a range of outstanding contributions which explore not only the advantages but also the complexities of a strategic approach to human resource management. Deliberately broad in scope to reflect the organization-wide ramifications of HRS, combining theoretical analyses alongside case studies of HRS in practice, the book offers a fascinating review of this crucial topic. The book begins by addressing key themes and debates within the field about the nature and role of human resource management. Succeeding sections then focus on three core organizational arenas inevitably implicated in strategic human resource management - organizational structure, culture and personnel strategies. Human Resource Strategies is a Course Reader for the Open University Course B884 Human Resource Strategies.
