Introduction to Human Resource Management (HRM) is a textbook designed primarily for undergraduates new to the subject. Written in a concise and accessible style, it is ideal for introductory courses and modular programmes. The student is supplied with a range of source materials, discussionquestions, and references for assignment work and guided study. The contents draw upon two fundamental traditions inherent within human resource management: one which takes an individual, psychological focus and another which starts from an industrial relations perspective. Pinnington and Edwards' account covers all the main elements of HRM and focuses oncontemporary developments, setting them within the internal organizational and wider environmental contexts. The book fosters a good understanding of the management of human resources and encourages critical thinking on theory and practice.
Ashly Pinnington is a Senior Lecturer in Human Resource Management at Robert Gordon University ; prior to this he was Senior Lecturer at the University of Exeter. Tony Edwards is a Lecturer at Warwick Business School, University of Warwick
