In recent times, the function of human resource management has assumed new prominence as concerns persist about globalization, the internationalization of commerce, trade, and technology, and the on-going quest for increased productivity of labor. It is argued that these developments require managers to change the way in which they manage the employment relationship to allow for the most effective utilization of human resources. This HR book is a collection of pertinent readings and presents the fundamentals of HRM. At its core, the content is principle-based, comprehensive, yet fundamentally focused. The readings assume and embrace a truly international perspective with many international examples at hand. The main text introduces the reader to the major concepts and issues before offering critical comments, discussing alternatives perspectives, and presenting global solutions.
