What makes good HR strategy and how do you develop it? These are questions commonly asked by HR professionals and are just two of the fundamental issues tackled by the authors in this comprehensive and innovative new textbook. Written in a clear and accessible style specifically for students, Strategic Human Resource Management is the perfect stand-alone text for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying modules in Strategic HRM. Drawing from the latest academic research and topical insights from the industry, it aims to build upon basic knowledge of the subject to provide students with a clear guide to the theory and practice of managing people strategically. The text adopts a user-friendly structure and is broken down into four key concepts to help students increase their understanding of SHRM theory and its prospective applications. Part One looks at the concept of SHRM and the relevance of environmental factors; Part Two then proceeds to examine theories of SHRM and the link between performance, the role of the HR department and HR strategy; Part Three of the book considers the overarching themes within SHRM such as employee engagement, corporate social responsibility, change management and knowledge management before identifying new forms of SHRM and key future trends in the fourth and final section of the book. Packed with case studies and useful pedagogical features such as end-of-chapter review questions, key concepts and critical reflection boxes, this textbook offers an engaging and insightful approach to all areas of Strategic Human Resource Management.
