A comprehensive introduction to HRM for students who are new to the field, but who will be seeking employment in a global market, working with diverse colleagues and across international borders. Broken down into three parts covering Strategic Issues in HRM, HRM in Practice and HRM in Context, and weaving international and cross-cultural perspectives throughout, the text explores the ever-changing world of human resource management. The various theories, practices and debates that populate this field are examined, and the challenges and controversies that arise when theory meets practice are explored. The international dimension in all its aspects including cross-cultural working, diversity, equality and international business have been considered throughout. Practical learning features have been included to help students develop skills they can apply to their course and in graduate employment. In the new edition, the authors have further explored the international context for HRM, not just for multinational corporations but also for small businesses and not-for-profit organizations, with added analysis on the importance of recognizing that effective functioning of organizations is not simply measured by financial performance, but also by taking into account the broader social, economic and political contexts. International case studies covering emerging economies and specific ethical issues are included with each chapter containing two case studies - one short case mid-chapter and a longer end-of-chapter case, each of which has a set of accompanying questions for students to explore individually or in groups to broaden their learning. The book is supported by a SAGE Edge site, featuring a range of tools and resources for lecturers and students, including SAGE journal articles, PowerPoint slides, web and video links, interactive multiple choice questions, chapter specific podcasts and an instructor’s manual. Suitable for undergraduates and post-graduate students looking for a strategic and international perspective of HRM.

What is strategic HRM, and how do you apply it in business? What makes good HR strategy and how do you develop it? What are the key issues that need to be considered when creating, developing, and embedding a strategic approach to managing people? These are the fundamental questions asked byHR professionals and tackled in this innovative and comprehensive textbook.Drawing on the latest academic research, the well-respected author team take a reliably thematic approach to SHRM. Broken into four distinct parts, the book addresses the context, theories, themes, and future of managing people strategically. Tata Motors, Samsung, Pizza Express, and Deliveroo makeup some of the case studies and examples that feature across the book, ensuring that theoretical discussion is always linked to practical application. New "Strategic HRM in Action" boxes take this one step further by presenting students with a scenario in which they themselves can make strategicdecisions and reflect on their own evaluation of real-life business practices.Critical thinking is essential in SHRM, so frequent Critical Reflection boxes, Review Questions, and questions or activities to accompany every case study ensure students are challenged to engage with the subject critically and reflectively, and consider their own evaluations of the essentialtheories and the strategic practices adopted by different organizations. Global case studies and an opening chapter dedicated to the global context of SHRM challenge the dominant Western perspective and provide a rounded and adaptable view of SHRM.A user-friendly structure and wide range of learning features, including learning objectives, key concept boxes, and summaries, ensure the text remains accessible, even for those completely new to SHRM, allowing all students to benefit from the book's ideal balance between the latest academic theoryand contemporary, real-world practice.
