What is strategic HRM, and how do you apply it in business? What makes good HR strategy and how do you develop it? What are the key issues that need to be considered when creating, developing, and embedding a strategic approach to managing people? These are the fundamental questions asked byHR professionals and tackled in this innovative and comprehensive textbook.Drawing on the latest academic research, the well-respected author team take a reliably thematic approach to SHRM. Broken into four distinct parts, the book addresses the context, theories, themes, and future of managing people strategically. Tata Motors, Samsung, Pizza Express, and Deliveroo makeup some of the case studies and examples that feature across the book, ensuring that theoretical discussion is always linked to practical application. New "Strategic HRM in Action" boxes take this one step further by presenting students with a scenario in which they themselves can make strategicdecisions and reflect on their own evaluation of real-life business practices.Critical thinking is essential in SHRM, so frequent Critical Reflection boxes, Review Questions, and questions or activities to accompany every case study ensure students are challenged to engage with the subject critically and reflectively, and consider their own evaluations of the essentialtheories and the strategic practices adopted by different organizations. Global case studies and an opening chapter dedicated to the global context of SHRM challenge the dominant Western perspective and provide a rounded and adaptable view of SHRM.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, allowing all students to benefit from the book's ideal balance between the latest academic theoryand contemporary, real-world practice.The book is accompanied by a selection of online resources:For students:* Glossary* Web linksFor registered lecturers:* Additional case studies* PowerPoint slides* Seminar activities* Suggested case study answers* Figures from the book

Strategic Human Resource Management has been a topic familiar to many. But this book approaches the same topic in a current global economy with so many Indian business houses venturing into acquiring global giants and establishing themselves atop of the world of business in our growing economy. This means that with electronic communication making the world into a global village and virtual organizations and learning having made the distinction between 'place' and 'space' not a matter of importance, strategies to be adapted by the HR professionals should be totally new. That is where this book is having a new approach to SHRM. It is interspersed with contemporary Indian cases and experience to fall back on to illustrate the different strategies HR has to play as a business partner. Issues in employee privacy in case of virtual organizations have been vividly dealt with. Gone are the days of the fire-fighting role of HR professionals. They are required to play a vital role being part of the business strategy not only at the domestic arena but also in the global business. Challenges involved in building multicultural organizations, cross border merger and acquisition and repatriation and outsourcing are topics that are significant in the local as well as the global human resource management which are discussed extensively. The book explains career planning and development and compensation packages in the context of competencies and balanced scorecard. When speed and alacrity are demanded of all the employees to stay ahead of competition, the employees are required to put in extended hours and work in a stressful environment. Hence, the new-era HR professional has to resort to developmental activities through mentoring, coaching, counseling, stress management and emotional balance. The book is divided into five parts. Apart from the stories narrated within the text of the book, and some exercises, there is a separate section of cases at the end of the book to augment the concepts narrated in each part. It would not only fully meet the requirements of MBA students but would also give new direction to the practicing HR professionals.

The book expounds the macro-level relationship between strategy, HRM, and performance, addressing important challenges that have constrained research and practice to date. Adopting a critical perspective, the first challenge is a narrow definition of 'performance' that has been largely driven by a managerialist, profit motive, with little regard for the human element. This book proposes adopting a more balanced approach towards measuring performance, encompassing both organizational financial performance as well as employee well-being. The second challenge is that HRM has largely been considered a universalistic phenomenon, rather than needing to be understood in the context in which an organization is operating. The book puts forward the argument for a more context-centric perspective, culminating in the development of the Contextual Strategic Human Resource Management Framework. The book emphasizes the importance of strategy, alignment, context, the role of actors, and a holistic conceptualisation of performance. Embedded in all chapters is a focus on achieving an appropriate balance between options, rather than providing a universalistic solution to all human resource management challenges.
