Strategic Human Resource Management
Life is tough in organisations, both for managers and the managed. Lynda Gratton, Veronica Hope Hailey, Philip Stiles, Catherine Truss.
Negotiating the rapids of restructuring, downsizing, and refocusing the core business brings with it huge upheavals in job security, the smashing of traditional career structures, and a constant imperative for employees to update their skills while working in an environment of great uncertainty.
Based on close collaboration with a number of high profile organizations - BT, Citibank, Glaxo Wellcome, Hewlett Packard, Kraft Jacobs Suchard, Lloyds-TSB Group, the NHS and WH Smith - this book sheds light on the organisational responses to large scale changes and details the changing demands made of employees in the process. This book goes beyond fashionable management rhetoric to uncover the reality of human resource management.
