This book has been written specifically for those who need to manage people effectively for business success. It is designed to provide practical insight into the management of the human resources of an organization. It is an indispensable book for those individuals holding management positions in organizations and for all learners seeking insight into the most important aspects of human resource management. This 3rd edition has been completely restructured to provide not only in-depth and practical insight into HRM but also a focus on outcomes designed to help readers and learners develop their ability to practice HRM. To support this focus, chapter content is aligned to the outcomes and each chapter has a 'Practicing HRM' section with tasks designed to assist readers and learners to put the content into practice and meet the chapter outcomes.
This is a comprehensive HRM book, covering: the role of HRM in organizations; strategic HRM; South African labor legislation; the South African labor relations system; managing labor relations at the workplace; HR planning and staffing; managing diverse and unique individuals; attracting, motivating, and retaining staff; leading people; managing relational capital, structural capital, organizational culture, and change; managing employee performance; compensation and rewarding performance; training, development, and learning; strategic leadership. Although there is a comprehensive theoretical basis, the emphasis is also on the practical implications of the theory. Example documents are included, such as an employment contract and other relevant HRM information management documents and policies, which, besides being available in the book, can also be accessed on a specially designed website.
