A Dictionary of Human Resource Management Summary


A Dictionary of Human Resource Management by Professor Edmund Heery

The Dictionary of Human Resource Management is an authoritative source of precise and easy to understand definitions of words, terms, and phrases that are encountered in the fields of human resource management, personnel, and industrial relations. It has been compiled to demystify and make accessible the vast specialist language that has developed within the human resource discipline. The dictionary includes over 1,400 entries, with 1,250 full definitions. These cover the latest contemporary terms and management buzzwords; key theoretical terms and concepts from academics and consultants; jargon from the present and the past; technical terms used by practicing personnel/HR managers and trade unionists; major policies, practices, and institutions; and legal terms. The authors also provide a full list of abbreviations and acronyms and a thematic categorization of the main concepts. In compiling the dictionary the authors were aware that often there is no one agreed definition of a term, but instead various competing ideas or interpretations. To take this into account, the entries differ in length, and the various theoretical, political, and other viewpoints are fully represented. There are also plenty of links to other terms, so that readers can explore related ideas and concepts. While aimed primarily at MBA, specialist Masters and undergraduate students who need a book of clear, concise definitions to complement their core course textbook, the dictionary is also ideal for anyone studying for professional qualificiations in human resources/personnel management; busy human resource pratitioners who need a quick reference source; trade unionists who need to cut through the management jargon; and students whose first language is not English.

"[D]ictionaries like this ... are food for the mind and soul, and I couldn't have asked for a better HRM dictionary than this one, its English exactitude combined with classic British understatement. It captures so well the unique English penchants for legalism, capitalism, collectivism, and a hint of Marxism."--Personnel Psychology
