about this item
Michael Armstrong and Stephen Taylor present a clearly laid out and no nonsense book for all students of Human Resources and HR managers. The latest edition of this classic text will be updated in line with emerging theory and practice, embracing the most current thinking on engagement, talent management and leadership development, whilst maintaining its in-depth coverage of all the key areas essential to the HR function such as Employment Law, Employee Relations, Learning and Development, Performance and Reward. The 14th edition will be completely refreshed with new references to academic journals, practitioner magazines, recent research and surveys, and with new case studies. The whole learning and development part of the handbook will be substantially revised and rearranged, and the reward management section will be updated to reflect new approaches to subjects such as job evaluation and pay structures.Comprehensive online support material is also provided for the instructor, student and now also the HR manager, providing a complete resource for teaching and self-learning. The students' manual includes multiple-choice-questions, flash cards, case studies, further reading and a glossary of HRM terms. The lecturers' manual contains session notes, discussion points and questions, literature review, and is accompanied by a complete set of PowerPoint slides.
The subject matter will be aligned more clearly to the CIPD professional map and professional standards so that it is clearer to the reader which sections meet which CIPD learning outcomes.
