Abstract

Critical Issues in Human Resource Management is a substantial and authoritative multi-author textbook for HRM modules that take a critical approach. It problematises core HRM topics, encouraging sophisticated thinking about HR interventions. - Written by a team of experts primarily at Middlesex University but also from other UK and international institutions - Part 3 is unique in applying HRM practices to specific industry contexts rather than assuming `best practice is universal. This will enable students to think about how different issues might be dealt with differently in, for example, an NHS trust and a hotel - Draws out the importance of state/corporate governance of the workplace and the politics of workplace relations - Integrates students' prior understanding of the key operational aspects of HRM with the wider institutional and social contexts in which they occur - Expands students' knowledge of HR-related theory with wider social and business theory, enabling them to apply critical approaches to HR problems
