This seventh edition of the best-selling A Handbook of Personnel Management Practice has been retitled A Handbook of Human Resource Management Practice. The fresh and thorough update has taken account of the move towards HRM that has been gathering force since 1991. One third of the book has been completely rewritten to incorporate these new areas in HR practice and thinking. This practitioner's book will new appeal to those taking a Master's degree in HRM as well as to IPD students. There are considerable revisions to areas such as : the role of the HR practitioner and the HR function;recruitment and psychological testing;employee relations (to include the findings of the Workshop Employee Relations Survey published in 1998). Nine chapters have been included on : the employment relationship;the psychological contract;selection interviewing;performance management (to reflect the outcome of IPD research during 1997 and 1998);organisational culture. The book also deals with the emerging issue of new partnership agreements with the Trade Unions. Current HRM practice is increasingly focused on the importance of retaining employees.
