Description - Human Resource Management by Professor Phil B. Beaumont
This textbook aims to meet the clear need for a substantial but accesssible introduction to the practice of human resource management within the context of relevant theory and current debates. In a discussion that ranges from the strategic and policy aspects of HRM to the day-to-day processes of employee management, the author identifies and explores key concepts and skills. Distinctive features of the book: it focuses on issues of direct relevance to all line managers, not just to human resource specialists; it combines a knowledge-based approach with a practical introduction to the most important skills; it gives numerous examples, encapsulates concepts and techniques in clear tables, and includes a teaching appendix of discussion questions; it adopts a broad international perspective, drawing on case material from Europe, the United States and elsewhere. The author looks at the meaning of strategic human resource management. He considers its relations with organizational change, and its role in international competitiveness. From an HRM standpoint, he addresses such crucial topics as selection and appraisal, rewards and compensation, employee participation and development.
"Human Resource Management: Key Concepts and Skills" should be reading for MBA students, for undergraduate doing HRM as part of a management or business studies course, and for practising line managers.
