Human Resource Management Summary

Human Resource Management: Rhetorics and Realities by Karen Legge

Is HRM any different from Personnel Management? Has HRM in the UK achieved its objectives of strategic integration, flexibility, commitment and quality? Is HRM past its sell-by date? One of the core books in the Management, Work and Organisations series, Human Resource Management analyses personnel management and HRM from a critical perspective, questioning their place in the labour process and the broader socio-politico-economic context. Highly integrated, this original book addresses the major debates surrounding HRM offering an extended dialogue between the normative models of HRM and published empirical data. The book is particularly suitable for MBA students both in the UK and worldwide but will also be of interest to undergraduate students on business and management courses and those studying professional courses such as Institute of Personnel Development (IPD).
