    DescriptionHuman Resource Management (HRM) continues to be a contentious issue for the UK Ministry of Defence and the British Armed Forces. This book is an examination of this area, through a series of conferences, seminars and publications at The Royal Military College of Science. There have been a number of important developments in the area of HRM in the Armed Forces. These have taken the form of strategic reports by the MoD and the Defence Select Committee. Our latest conference addressed a number of these issues from a forward thinking perspective. It recognised that the UK Armed Services may well have to start thinking "outside of the box" in terms of recruitment and retention, the role of women within the military and the need for an independent representative body to defend and put forward the views of the Armed Forces Personnel. This book, as with our previous publications, is designed to ensure that the studies are practitioner-based an set within analytical frameworks. In the ongoing belief that our approach will continue to open up the debate in this area and encourage further research and analysis, we have set out to make each chapter educational, informative and, we hope, as challenging as ever.
