This fully revised and updated 2nd edition of Human Resource Management: A Global and Critical Perspective builds on the previous edition’s success to bring an even sharper exploration of HRM in a real-world global context. With a critical approach that is woven into the chapters and encourages students to question assumptions in HRM, there is a consistent focus on the impact of globalization, the ways in which theory has addressed the implications of a globalized workforce, and the way HRM works in multinational corporations. Boasting a truly global orientation which is removed from the typically western-centric approach, this textbook draws on the expert knowledge of chapter authors from around the world, combining international case studies with a strong offering of pedagogical features. Yet while this textbook is designed to engage the student and elicit independent thought, it also adopts a rigorous academic level which is grounded in the very latest research.

New to this edition:

  • Brand new chapters: Talent Management; International Assignments; Managing Global and Migrant Workers; Sustainable HRM
  • Revised and refreshed international case studies, including a mini-case at the start of each chapter and end of chapter case studies focused on an array of diverse, mostly non-western, regions of the world
  • An innovative offering of pedagogical features, including critical discussions, action-orientated activities designed to engage students in transferable skill development, ‘In the News’ segments exploring contemporary issues, and ‘Stop and Reflect’ boxes to encourage critical thinking skills

This is a core textbook for general business and management degrees, specialist HRM degrees, and international business degrees. It is an ideal companion for students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
