Human resource management: challenges and future directions is a book of invited chapters about aspects of HRM, a book that poses particular challenges and offers advice to managers and in particular HR managers of contemporary organisations. First, it provides valuable insights into managing people. Second, it addresses contemporary challenges that HR managers and managers in general face every day. Third, it outlines the practical implications of issues for organisations. Forth, it identifies future directions for managers and particularly HR managers to consider in their quest to develop high performance workplaces.

Overall, we feel the book fulfils, a real need for HR managers and students of Human Resource Managers alike. It supports current texts on Human Resource Management with alternative views and perspectives. It is unique in that it provides up-to-date commentary from a group of noted authors on significant issues relating to HRM.

The chapters have been grouped in four parts: The changing Context of HRM, Contemporary Issues in Employment Relations, Contemporary Issues in Managing Performance and Development, and Managing for the New Millennium.
