Using real-life case studies and written with a student-centred approach, this 5th edition provides students with the necessary knowledge and skills to enable them to undertake a piece of business research making the best use of IT where appropriate.
The authors take the employment relationship between the employer and employee as the central concept and examine the issues from 'inside the employment relationship, looking out' rather than the traditional approach of looking at the factors that impinge upon the employment relationship.
"This book is unique in that it makes the link between change and human resource strategy. What role and contribution does human resource management make to the process of change management?" "The text explores this question and enables the student to identify and analyse human resource strategies which contribute to or facilitate change and provides the models of evaluation for assessing the contribution and its outcomes. This is presented through a learning approach based on the use of theory related to real case studies, allowing the students to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of the subject." "This book is ideal for advanced undergraduate students taking a change option within an HRM pathway or degree, or those on a change management course which has an HR focus. Equally it is of use to those taking an MBA or Master's HRM course with a change element."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
