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. Fully updated, this edition incorporates the latest thinking, research and practice on strategic Human Resource Management and contains completely revised chapters on HRM, HR strategy, the formulation and implementation of strategy, roles in strategic HRM and strategic reward.

This indispensable book includes coverage of international aspects of strategic human resource management. It 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, employee engagement and talent management.

Including a new chapter on organizational effectiveness, Armstrong's Strategic Human Resource Management sets out a strategic framework for HRM; a framework for implementing SHRM in action; and a section on HR strategies. Case studies, checklists, practical examples and a 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.
