Book Description :
Book & CD. This fourth edition makes it clear that all who are interested in the sustainability of South Africa -- and Africa -- must put human resource management (HRM) at the very core of the management of organisations generally. The content is aligned to outcomes that are geared towards analytical and critical thinking about the theory and practice of HRM in South Africa. The African context is addressed, and ample information about HRM aspects 'elsewhere in Africa' is provided. This edition breaks away even further from the traditional structure of so many standard HRM textbooks. It challenges a broadening of the 'agenda' and scope of HRM work: HRM is not only about managing employees, but also about managing the work and the people who do the work of and in organisations. This may involve alternative ways of getting the work of organisations done superiorly. This book will help you to apply HRM effectively to achieve its ultimate aim, namely to add value to people, to organisations and to society. This comprehensive book is organised around themes such as: Developing an appreciation for the context of HRM in South Africa; Strategising, designing and planning as preparatory HRM work; Sourcing work talent; Facing the countrys people empowerment challenge; Meeting the reward and care challenge; Handling labour and employee relations challenges; Championing change and transformation; Managing HRM-related information, including HRM and sustainability reporting. Based on most recent theoretical developments, the emphasis is on the practical applications. Samples of relevant documents are included, and an accompanying CD contains a wealth of relevant resources as well as a continuing, integrating case study that serves as a basis for these applications, and individual and group activities. As a package, South African Human Resource Management will be extremely valuable to both current and aspirant managers, and human resource practitioners.
