The tenth edition of Human Resource Management continues to present both the theoretical and practical aspects of HRM.

The practical aspects of HRM are presented through lively and pedagogically, effective examples woven throughout the text and in the end-of-chapter materials. This edition reflects the challenges of diversity, technology and globalization in the business world and how these forces impact the HRM function within organizations. Features: Over 30 new HRM in Action examples. Lists of key terms with page references have been added to the end of every chapter. Updated coverage of HR issues, including executive compensation and e-recruitment.

Changing government and legal requirements, increased awareness for security issues, new information systems, downsizing, demands for a more skilled workforce and intensifying global competition are just a few of the factors that are addressed in the new edition.
