Human Resource Management in Europe: Text and Cases Summary
This book sets out to provide students with both a theoretical and a practical guide to human resource management right across the European continent. The book tackles the HRM challenges facing businesses in the new Europe and shows how human resource managers can understand and respond effectively to the changing employment contexts in which they will be making decisions. The book makes extensive use of real-life case studies and role play materials. The authors are drawn from around Europe and are able to provide informed experience of the similarities and differences between human resource management problems in varying cultural contexts. The cases reflect the professional personnel experience of the authors, offering students an insight into the practice as well as the theory of human resource management in everyday situations. The book's six sections cover the full spectrum of HRM issues: the human resource management function, managing people, employee resourcing, human resourcing, human resource development, reward management and industrial relations and employee involvement. Each section includes an introduction setting out the key issues in current theory and practice, and then allows the student to explore the subject through role plays, practical cases and exercises. "Human Resource Management in Europe" is aimed at MBA students taking HRM, industrial relations and organizational behaviour courses, and for specialist undergraduate courses in personnel management, industrial relations, management studies and European management studies. The wide European scope of the book makes it suitable for courses throughout Europe, and also in the US where there is increasing interest in the European scene.
