HR managers have to serve the interests of their organizations, comprising employees, customers and the community at large as well as shareholders, or, in the public or voluntary sectors, those who have the ultimate responsibility for what the organization does. It also means exercising social responsibility, being concerned for the interests (well-being) of employees and acting ethically with regard to the needs of people in the organization and the community. Armstrong's Essential Human Resource Management Practice provides a complete overview of the practices and processes fundamental to managing people. The text provides a thorough introduction to the core areas of HR including: people resourcing, performance management, learning and development and rewarding people. It also examines the contribution of HR to organizational aims and objectives and how it is integrated within the business. The book is accompanied by online resources for both lecturers and students and adopts an increased focus on employee engagement, a concept which is becoming increasingly prominent in people management, but which is often presented as a mantra without being properly understood; this is examined in detail with reference to recent research. Michael Armstrong's original Handbook of Human Resource Management is the classic text for all those studying HR or who are entering the profession for the first time. In this new title Michael Armstrong provides a condensed text which has been rewritten with the non-HR student or professional in mind, describing and evaluating key HRM concepts such as: HRM itself; strategic HRM; the resource-based view; the choice between best practice and best fit; human capital measurement; motivation theory; emotional intelligence; the flexible firm; the learning organization; and financial rewards.

Ein Standard für professionelles Human Capital Reporting (HCR) mit aussagefähigen und quantifizierbaren Informationen Der Standard HCR10 beschreibt, wie sich personalwirtschaftlich relevante Tatbestände in der Berichterstattung der Unternehmen niederschlagen sollen. Durch eine derartige Standardisierung erfolgt eine Vereinfachung im Prozess der Berichterstattung. Vor allem aber werden die „HR-Metrics“ durch ihre Strukturäquivalenz lesbar, verstehbar und damit vergleichbar. Zum Inhalt * Der erste Abschnitt dieses Buches betont die Aktualität und Relevanz einer Standardisierung des Human Capital Reportings. Die derzeitige Ausgangslage sowie Ziele und Trends, denen sich das HCR gegenüber sieht, werden verdeutlicht. * Die Systematik des HCR10, welche unmissverständlich klar macht, welche Kennzahlen einen Bericht über Personal (sei es im Geschäfts-, im Nachhaltigkeits- oder im Personalbericht) aussagekräftig machen wird im zweiten Abschnitt vorgestellt. * Der dritte Abschnitt widmet sich der konkreten Ausgestaltung des HC-Reportings. Anhand von illustrativen Beispielen wird verdeutlicht, wie die Berichterstattung der einzelnen geforderten Kennzahlen aussehen kann. * Wer bei der Erstellung eines Berichts welche Aufgaben übernehmen und welche Daten liefern sollte, wird im vierten Abschnitt erörtert. Zudem wird diskutiert, welchen Nutzen ein dem HCR10 entsprechendes Reporting für diverse Interessengruppen wie Personalleiter, Aufsichtsräte, Wirtschaftsprüfer oder Bewerber hat. * Im abschließenden fünften Abschnitt wird eine Vision für das HC-Reporting in Deutschland formuliert. Über die Autoren Prof. Dr. Christian Scholz ist Inhaber des Lehrstuhls für Organisation, Personal- und Informationsmanagement an der Universität des Saarlandes.

This text is an important addition to the ongoing discourse on strategic management, particularly, strategic human resource management. It is a result of research carried out in the agricultural sector, in general, and on multinational tea firms, in particular. The author’s hands-on and conceptual insights gained through nineteen years of experience across African countries make the text a useful tool for company boards of directors and strategic level managers charged with the formulation and implementation of business and human resource strategies. In addition, it provides justification to HR managers of the need to shift focus from primarily being concerned with routine transactional HR activities to dealing with transformational ones, which are contingent on the circumstances of the organization. Scholars, management consultants and management students will also find the contents of this book to be of great interest and benefit. It is now sufficiently recognised that management has to be concerned with deliverables, rather than abstractions. Therefore, many firms formulate and implement one form of business strategy or the other. However, strategies cannot be conceived, let alone realised, without human resource input. The question that HR continues to grapple with, therefore, is how it can demonstrate the contribution of each employee to the bottom line and business sustainability. How this question is to be answered has not always been explained and is even more crucial for the agricultural firms which are characterized by great instability in terms of weather patterns, commodity prices, currency exchange rates and wage levels. HR planning, in these circumstances, cannot be a simple exercise, but getting it right is more important than for organizations in more predictable environments. This book moves away from the romanticization of the role of HRM in such organizations, and instead provides empirical evidence of the types of business and human resource strategies employed, strategic integration between these strategies and the strategic human resource management processes and practices used. Finally, it considers the concomitant synergies achieved by strategic fit between business and human resource strategies and their role in achieving sustainable competitive advantage.

Ende der 60er Jahre beschäftigte ich mich eher zufällig mit kulturellen Unterschiede- und stieß dabei auf umfangreiches Material für eine Studie. Als Ergebnis dieser Studie wurde im Jahr 1980 ein Buch zu diesem Thema mit dem Titel Culture's Consequences veröffentlicht. Es war bewußt für ein Fachpublikum geschrieben, denn es weckte Zweifel an der Allgemeingültigkeit traditioneller Lehren der Psychologie, Organisationssoziolo gie und Manag!!menttheorie: ich mußte daher sowohl die theoretische Argumentation darlegen, als auch Basisdaten und die statistischen Verfahren angeben, an hand derer ich meine Thesen aufstellte. Die 1984 erschienene Taschenbuchausgabe verzichtete auf Basisdaten und Statistik, war ansonsten aber mit der gebundenen Ausgabe von 1980 identisch. Culture's Consequences erschien in einer Zeit, als das Interesse an kulturellen Unterschie den sowohl zwischen Ländern als auch zwischen Organisationen rapide anstieg; es gab damals kaum empirisch gestützte Informationen zu diesem Thema. Die Unterschiede zwischen Ländern waren zwar auch in dem vorherigen Buch enthalten, aber vielleicht waren es zu viele auf einmal. Offensichtlich haben sich viele Leser nur mit einem Teil des Inhalts befaßt. Viele Leute, die sich auf das Buch berufen, behaupten beispielsweise, ich hätte die Wertvorstellungen von IBM-(oder "Hermes-") Führungskräften untersucht. Die von mir verwendeten Daten bezogen sich auf IBM-Mitarbeiter, und wie das Buch selbst zeigte, ist dies ein erheblicher Unterschied.

Job evaluation is key to ensuring that employees are compensated fairly for their work. It is therefore essential that HR professionals have a robust process in place so that pay and reward are transparent and defensible within teams and across departments. Armstrong's Job Evaluation Handbook gives HR professionals all the tools they need to assess which approach to job evaluation is most suitable, how to implement it and how to maintain it. Packed with case studies from leading organizations such as Microsoft, Vodafone and the NHS, this guide will provide HR professionals with the ability to answer key questions such as how can we decide what is fair to pay our staff, how can we make sure that work of equal value receives equal pay and how can we make sure that our salaries remain competitive in the market? Armstrong's Job Evaluation Handbook covers everything needed to put effective job evaluation processes in place, including analytical matching and market pricing, developing job grades and defining pay structures. There is also coverage of the latest trends and issues in job evaluation, such as the decline in points-rated systems and the use of levelling by consultants. Underpinned by original research, this is a book that no HR department can afford to be without.
