Provides comprehensive, practical description and discussion of the functions of personnel management, supported by extensive illustrative material and evidence from current practice. The text has a logical structure: each part begins with a chapter on the strategic aspects of personnel management within the wider organisation; this is followed by chapters covering the core operational aspects; the final chapter in each part covers the practical skills of interaction needed by a personnel manager. Beyond updating the material to reflect legislative changes, current business practice and emerging issues of professional debate, this revision has introduced a range of assessment material and new illustrative material, pedagogical and text design enhancements, and improved lecturer support material.

I have used this text over many years, both in the UK on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and overseas on MBA programmes, and have come to rely on its comprehensive mix of academic and practical insights into the world of HR. It is easy to follow, engaging in style, and keeps the reader’s interest up.
