About the Book

Used by over 25,000 students across 130 countries, this bestselling text, written by leading international experts in each topic, retains its critical edge, academic rigour and breadth of coverage in the new fifth edition.

The fifth edition has been updated to reflect the contemporary debates and emerging issues in the field of IHRM, and is supported by a selection of up-to-date examples from across the globe, including Uber’s regulatory challenges across Europe, the gig economy, employment rights after Brexit, health insurance for part-timers in the US and EU, attracting and retaining ‘millennials’, the world’s happiest and unhappiest countries, and CSR in Hong Kong.

Divided into three sections, the book’s authors supplement classic theories and models with recent research and international developments. The first section looks at the ways of thinking about IHRM theory and practice; the second section deals with multinational companies and how they manage their workforce around the world; the final section looks at both traditional and newer approaches to IHRM policies and practices.
