    DescriptionHRM is central to management teaching and research, and has emerged in the last decade as a significant field from its earlier roots in Personnel Management, Industrial Relations, and Industrial Psychology. People Management and High Performance teams have become key functions and goals for manager at all levels in organizations. The Oxford Handbook brings together leading scholars from around the world - and from a range of disciplines - to provide an authoritative account of current trends and developments. The Handbook is divided into four parts: * Foundations and Frameworks, * Core Processes and Functions, * Patterns and Dynamics, * Measurement and Outcomes.

    Review quote
    This excellent Handbook provides a valuable insight into the main issues that currently preoccupy the field of human resource management ... the book is remarkable. It contains many first-rate chapters written by leading authorities. British Journal of Industrial Relations ...a superb collection of up-to-date chapters on the evolving subject of HRM... it debates the ideas of HRM viewed through numerous academic disciplines... the chapters offer a comprehensive investigation of HRM and a much needed discussion of how it contributes to organisational performance. Industrial Relations Journal Many contributors go beyond the usual remit of summarizing theory and research as it currently exists and contribute new theoretical insights and directions. Relations Industrielles/Industrial Relations This is a sophisticated and scholarly volume. It provides an excellent overview of HRM for those seeking to learn more about the field and a valuable resource for those teaching or researching in the area. Work and Occupations
