This new and engaging core textbook offers a unique line manager perspective that presents students with HRM topics and issues that they will be confronted with once they enter the world of work in a managerial role. It is a concise text that focuses on providing students with all they need to know to equip them with a comprehensive understanding of the role the (non-HR) manager plays in the day-to-day running of an organization. The author's deep understanding and wide-ranging knowledge of the subject matter means that the text is firmly founded on the latest research, while the case studies, topical and international examples, and experiential exercises that form a fundamental part of the book ensure that theory is always clearly applied to real-world practice.This text is an essential companion for MBA and postgraduate students who are studying modules on Human Resource Management or Managing People but who are non-HRM specialists and do not require the exhaustive detail found in other HRM texts. It is also suited for use alongside upper-level undergraduate modules on these topics on mainstream business degrees.
