Endorsed by the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI - the national association representing human resource and people management professionals), Managing Human Resources 4th edition presents a concise coverage of key HRM topics typically taught in a 12 or 13-week teaching semester.

Numerous practical examples throughout the text highlight contemporary HR issues, such as:

Employee engagement
Flexible working arrangements
Work-life balance
Generational issues in the workplace
Skills shortages in various industries
The importance of effective employee recruitment and training
The cost of involuntary staff turnover
Increasing diversity in the workplace
