Please visit the Human Resource Management at Work website on www.cipd.co.uk/HRMatwork to see a sample chapter and for further information.

'It provides conceptual fluency with access to a plethora of current highly up-to-date research evidence. Moreover, there are limited numbers of texts that deal with these issues with such a degree of competence - this is clearly a major plus for this text.'
Kirsty Newsome, Lecturer, Strathclyde University

'Comprehensive, lucid and coherent, the authors succeed admirably; one of the most user-friendly texts I have everread.'
Karen Legge
Human Resource Management Journal (on 1st edition)
