Strategic Human Resource Management

Second Edition

Catherine Bailey, David Mankin, Clare Kelliher, and Thomas Garavan

  • A well-respected author team introduce students to SHRM through an accessible, thematic approach that spans the context, theories, themes, and future of managing people strategically.
  • With nearly 50 case studies in the book and many more online, featuring companies such as Tata Motors, Samsung, Pizza Express, and Deliveroo, this is the most applied SHRM textbook available, ensuring academic discussion is always linked to practical application.
  • Critical Reflection boxes, Review Questions, and questions or activities to accompany every case study ensure students develop the necessary critical thinking and reflective skills to fully engage with the subject.
  • Global case studies, which include entry and growth strategies in China, the success of AirAsia, and changes in the Swedish armed forces, as well as an opening chapter dedicated to the global context of SHRM, provide a contemporary international perspective.
  • A user-friendly structure and wide range of learning features, including learning objectives, Key Concept boxes, and summaries, ensure the text remains accessible, even for those completely new to SHRM.

New to this Edition:

  • New coverage features the impact of eHRM and role of social media, the development of Green HRM, and sustainability, as well as examining issues such as handling risk and the gig economy.
  • Smart phone chip design company Arm, agile working at KPMG, and winning behaviours at the Carlsberg Group are just some of the new cases for the second edition, with the focus being on international examples that accurately represent the reality of global SHRM.
  • New Strategic HRM in Action boxes have been added to every chapter, presenting students with a scenario in which they are asked to make strategic decisions on behalf of an organization, or to research and evaluate real businesses' strategic approaches to HR.
