This short book is an all-encompassing, comprehensive compendium of definitions of human resource (HR) management strategies and explanations about aligning such strategies with corporate goals. It provides a clear overview of the subject, but then, the topic is vast. Michael Armstrong – a frequent author on human resource subjects – emphasizes comprehensiveness over specificity or evaluation. At times, in an effort to make everything clear and understandable, he is perhaps too much like an instructor and a bit talky, but that may be the nature of a work intended for reference and training. getAbstract recommends this book to human resource professionals looking for a straightforward guide to strategic management.
In this summary, you will learn
- What strategic human resource management (HRM) is;
- Why it is important to your organization; and
- How to understand and use the various strategies available.
