Summary note
Human Resource Management: A Very Short Introduction describes how the key players and watershed moments in labour history shaped the state of human resource management today. In our era of globalization, human resource management has to contend with a number of new and increasingly complex factors. These include global sourcing, regional trade agreements and labour standards, remote working, strategic alliances, and innovation driven by competition. As traditional sources of competitive advantage evaporate, firms increasingly look to human resource management to offer a competitive edge. This VSI shows how human resource management covers the relations between employees and their employers, exploring the range of HR practices, processes, and line management activities.
