Human Resource Management in Context Reviews


'This book is a very useful contribution to HRM learning and should sell well. More of this type of book would be welcome.' - Len Holden, DeMontfort University 'This is a text that is long overdue. It covers important current issues in an interesting and illuminating manner across a wide range of representative companies and sectors without talking down to students and readers...Compulsive reading for all those interested in what is happening in HRM now.' - Paul Frimston, University of Central Lancashire 'This text adopts an innovative approach to exploring HR issues, providing contemporary examples of HR in practice and encouraging students to adopt a critically evaluative approach.' - Susan Kirk, Nottingham Trent University 'Human Resource Management in Context hits the button where MBA programmes are concerned. It created lots of ideas for alternative ways of approaching topics.' - Moira Calder, University of Dundee 'There is a shortage of books providing a case-based introduction to human resource issues which this book fits. With its principal focus on prospective general and senior managers studying for MBAs, it is timely and will be of value to tutors and students on these courses.' - Huw Morris, University of the West of England
