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, serving as a guide both to formulating human resource strategies and to implementing them. This completely revised sixth edition examines HRM and SHRM as well as organizational and functional strategies from a practical standpoint. It includes brand new chapters on developing and delivering HR strategy, implementing individual performance strategies, creating and executing a corporate social responsibility strategy as well as a new discussion of international HRM strategies. Full of case studies, checklists and practical examples, Armstrong's Handbook of Strategic Human Resource Management is an indispensable resource for all those who are involved in putting complex strategy into practice to effect positive and productive change. Online supporting resources include lecture slides, an instructor's manual and a student's manual complete with a bibliography and glossary.
