The contemporary workplace is ever changing. In many countries the effects of economic globalization has seen the rise in zero-hour contracts, the erosion of trade union power and income inequality. In addition, high-performance work systems, business ethics and environmental sustainability are now creating tremendous challenges in many organizations. These developments play out amongst differing national and international contexts. This fluid and diverse environment makes it even more important to understand the myriad of different theories underpinning human resource management and to explore its impact on organizations, managers and workers. This engaging textbook provides an essential introduction to both the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of human resource management; it looks at the way organizations manage human capability, but also exposes the tensions inherent in the employment relationship, encouraging the reader to reflect critically on the realities of contemporary HRM. Building on the success of the previous five editions, this new edition includes: Two new chapters on Ethics in HRM and Green HRM New ‘HRM as I see it’ video interviews with real life HR managers sharing their experiences on managing people in organizations, accessible through a new interactive ebook New ‘HRM and Globalization’ features discussing the particular challenges faced by international organizations New ‘HRM in Practice’ features exploring practical implementation of HR theories Coverage of contemporary themes such as line managers’ roles in HRM, bullying, diversity and inequality Over 100 new references, bringing the discussion right up to date An extensive online resource centre with further teaching and learning materials, accessible at www.palgravehighered.com/bg-hrm-6e.

'This highly original book focuses on human resource management issues in the context of entrepreneurial and small firms, including original theoretical and empirical chapters. . . the book offers a unique insight into understanding the role of HRM in developing sustainable entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial ventures as well as how HRM practices and procedures can be used to help navigate, or indeed drive, the changing landscape in smaller and entrepreneurial firms. It is a useful resource for many small firms, entrepreneurship and economic development researchers, and also for policy-makers and post-graduate students interested in these areas. It provides a starting point to consider a variety of issues with regard to HRM and, in this regard it is an interesting and useful Handbook.' – Qihai Huang, International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour & Research This invaluable reference tool has been designed in response to the growing recognition that too little is known about the intersection between entrepreneurship and human resource management. Paying particular attention to the 'people' side of venture emergence and development, it offers unique insights into the role that human resource management (HRM) plays in small and entrepreneurial firms. A group of international scholars contribute theoretical and empirical chapters on specific HRM issues in the context of entrepreneurial and smaller firms. The Handbook offers a new understanding of the role of HRM in developing sustainable entrepreneurship and describes how HRM practices and procedures can be used to help navigate and, indeed, drive the changing landscape in these firms. Exploring the functional aspects and nature of managing HRM in new, small, growing, emerging and entrepreneurial firms, this fascinating Handbook will not only be warmly welcomed by HRM students, researchers and academics, but also by HR practitioners and managers.

Ein Standard für professionelles Human Capital Reporting (HCR) mit aussagefähigen und quantifizierbaren Informationen Der Standard HCR10 beschreibt, wie sich personalwirtschaftlich relevante Tatbestände in der Berichterstattung der Unternehmen niederschlagen sollen. Durch eine derartige Standardisierung erfolgt eine Vereinfachung im Prozess der Berichterstattung. Vor allem aber werden die „HR-Metrics“ durch ihre Strukturäquivalenz lesbar, verstehbar und damit vergleichbar. Zum Inhalt * Der erste Abschnitt dieses Buches betont die Aktualität und Relevanz einer Standardisierung des Human Capital Reportings. Die derzeitige Ausgangslage sowie Ziele und Trends, denen sich das HCR gegenüber sieht, werden verdeutlicht. * Die Systematik des HCR10, welche unmissverständlich klar macht, welche Kennzahlen einen Bericht über Personal (sei es im Geschäfts-, im Nachhaltigkeits- oder im Personalbericht) aussagekräftig machen wird im zweiten Abschnitt vorgestellt. * Der dritte Abschnitt widmet sich der konkreten Ausgestaltung des HC-Reportings. Anhand von illustrativen Beispielen wird verdeutlicht, wie die Berichterstattung der einzelnen geforderten Kennzahlen aussehen kann. * Wer bei der Erstellung eines Berichts welche Aufgaben übernehmen und welche Daten liefern sollte, wird im vierten Abschnitt erörtert. Zudem wird diskutiert, welchen Nutzen ein dem HCR10 entsprechendes Reporting für diverse Interessengruppen wie Personalleiter, Aufsichtsräte, Wirtschaftsprüfer oder Bewerber hat. * Im abschließenden fünften Abschnitt wird eine Vision für das HC-Reporting in Deutschland formuliert. Über die Autoren Prof. Dr. Christian Scholz ist Inhaber des Lehrstuhls für Organisation, Personal- und Informationsmanagement an der Universität des Saarlandes. Thomas Sattelberger leitet als Vorstand das Personalressort bei der Deutschen Telekom AG. Dieses Buch ist Pflichtlektüre für HR-Verantwortliche, die sich mit Personal-Controlling und -Reporting befassen – einem wichtigen Thema in großen Unternehmen, aber auch in KMU. Das Buch richtet sich bewusst aber auch an Aufsichtsräte, Vorstände, Wirtschaftsprüfer und Analysten: Sie sollen die hohe Berichtsqualität des HCR10 einfordern und nutzen.
