A comprehensive introduction to HRM for students who are new to the field, but who will be seeking employment in a global market, working with diverse colleagues and across international borders. 

Broken down into three parts covering Strategic Issues in HRMHRM in Practice and HRM in Context, and weaving international and cross-cultural perspectives throughout, the text explores the ever-changing world of human resource management. The various theories, practices and debates that populate this field are examined, and the challenges and controversies that arise when theory meets practice are explored. The international dimensions of HRM, including cross-cultural working, diversity, equality and international business, have been considered throughout. Practical learning features have been included to help students develop skills they can apply to their course and in graduate employment.

In the new edition, all chapters have been thoroughly updated and the authors have included an additional chapter on Digitization and Artificial Intelligence in HRM. 

The book is supported by a wide range of online resources and tools for both lecturers and students, including access to SAGE journal articles, chapter specific podcasts, SAGE video, PowerPoint slides, interactive multiple choice questions and SAGE Business Cases. 

Suitable for undergraduates and post-graduate students looking for a strategic and international perspective of HRM.
