About the book

Over the last three decades, the area of Strategic Human Resource Management (SHRM) has grown significantly. Over time, there has been a trend toward a strategic perspective that views employees as "assets" rather than "costs." Human resources were re-envisioned as a crucial source of competitive advantage. As a result, these assets had to be taken seriously: carefully chosen, taught and developed, and, most importantly, persuaded to offer dedication. The concept of 'human capital' became popular, and research output exploded in the decades following these breakthroughs.

 

Strategic Human Resource Management: A Research Overview, written by experts from around the world, gives a comprehensive overview of this critical aspect of organizational performance. The way work is arranged in skill and talent packages both within an organization's boundary and across global competency clusters is one of the important factors of organizational effectiveness, according to this new short-form book. Second, it concentrates on the present and emerging issues. Over time, the 'bundle' of HR practices has changed, and patterns can be seen. This new book focuses on the human resource consequences of rapidly changing economic, social, and technological situations.

 

This short book addresses important topics of long-term relevance, making it necessary reading for business researchers and professionals.
