HRM is central to management teaching and research, and has emerged in the last decade as a significant field from its earlier roots in Personnel Management, Industrial Relations, and Industrial Psychology. People Management and High Performance teams have become key functions and goals for manager at all levels in organizations.

The Oxford Handbook brings together leading scholars from around the world - and from a range of disciplines - to provide an authoritative account of current trends and developments. The Handbook is divided into four parts:

* Foundations and Frameworks,

* Core Processes and Functions,

* Patterns and Dynamics,

* Measurement and Outcomes.

Overall it will provide an essential resource for anybody who wants to get to grips with current thinking, research, and development on HRM.
