The aim of this revised and expanded text is to provide an up-to-date overview and analysis of the diverse and complex range of issues currently confronting the field of human resource management. Adopting a critical approach, the authors review theories of HRM, and apply these principles to emerging themes that exemplify the dynamic working environment confronting organisations today. The analysis is supported by examples and cases designed to provide the reader with a functional knowledge and appreciation of current human resource management (HRM) issues. The exploration highlights the challenges for HR professionals who are increasingly expected to provide leadership in the management of employees as a key source of organisational competitive advantage. It provides four new chapters, including: crisis and risk management, green skills, health & wellbeing, and justice at work. It takes a critical, analytical approach to the theory, bringing together contemporary challenges and issues in the management of human resources. This title offers dual analysis of the theory and the practice of managing contemporary challenges and issues in HRM in organisations. It provides case studies linked to the theory that demonstrate the challenging nature of the contemporary workplace and provide a practical focus on the issues discussed.
