Human resource management: a managerial perspective
This textbook is written from the perspective of practising line managers whose job involves human resource responsibilities. It covers the essential aspects of HR as they devolve and are integrated into line management responsibility. However, the text is not a 'how-to-do' handbook. Well developed theory is at the centre of good management practice and this text is firmly grounded in the essential theoretical concepts of HRM. The book comprehensively covers all the core HR concepts to enable the line manager to cope knowledgeably with the demands of his or her job. It draws on the manager's own knowledge and experience of the organization to build the relevant skills and competencies essential to good HR practice.
