Europe's most valuable resource is its people. In a region of such variety and complexity, the successful management of this resource is crucial to the future of the European Community and the Single European Market. But how will the nature of work and employment change as each country, shaped by its own unique history and culture, adapts to a new era of European unity? What does the future hold for workforces increasingly affected by international competition, growing unemployment, technological advance and changing demographics? "The European Human Resource Management Guide" provides a clear and comprehensive analysis of these fundamental issues. The result of intensive research by specialists native to the major European nations, this country-by-country guide provides the latest information on the prime concerns of human resource management; the role of governments and trade unions; labour markets and employment law; pay and benefits; recruitment and training schemes; education and social politics.
It also includes a long overdue clarification of the structure and policies of the European Community, general overviews of each country's culture and history, lists of useful addresses and contacts, and a consistent format which enables readers to find the required information quickly and easily. "The European Human Resource Management Guide" is an indispensible handbook for all those concerned with realizing the potential of Europe's most valuable asset. The book is aimed at managers in HRM, general and finance managers, banking consultants.
