Strategic human resource management has been taken up by academics, consultants and practitioners alike. However, the integration of human resource strategy with overall business strategy is often easier in theory than in practice. Armstrong's Handbook of Strategic Human Resource Management provides a bridge between theory and practice, and offers a guide both to formulating human resource strategies and to implementing them.
Completely revised, this fifth edition of an indispensable text includes new material on international aspects of strategic human resource management. The book also reflects important developments in HR strategies linked with those issues that affect HRM on a day-to-day basis, including:
• human capital management
• corporate social responsibility
• organization development
• talent management
Case studies, checklists, practical examples and a special strategic HR toolkit make this book an extremely practical resource for all those who are involved in putting complex strategy into practice, in order to effect positive and productive change.
