Now in its third edition, Contemporary Issues and Challenges in HRM provides students, academics and practitioners with an updated insight into a diverse and complex range of issues currently confronting the field of human resource management. Adopting a critical approach, the author team reviews theories of HRM and applies these principles to emerging themes that exemplify the dynamic working environment currently confronting organisations and HRM professionals.

The analysis is supported by examples designed to provide the reader with both knowledge and appreciation of current HRM issues. This exploration highlights the challenges for HR professionals, as they are increasingly expected to provide leadership in the management of employees as a key source of sustained organisational competitive advantage.

This edition is organised into four parts: Part I - The Contemporary Workplace; Part II - Managing the Individual at Work; Part III - Conflict at Work; and Part IV - Emerging Issues. Topics addressed include: the 'war' for talent; career management; emotional labour; privacy and workplace surveillance; health and wellbeing; risk and crisis management; and justice at work. New to this edition are chapters on older workers, and the 'dark side' of work.

Each chapter concludes with a case study that illustrates the challenging nature of the contemporary workplace and provides a practical focus for the issue discussed.
