Strategic HRM

Brian Harney & Kathy Monks

Strategic HRM: Research and Practice in Ireland provides an integrated overview of the theory and practice of strategic human resource management (SHRM), including a critical analysis of its relevance, application and development in an Irish context. Each of the chapters in this collection carefully considers global progress and debates in SHRM before examining how Irish research evidence contributes to these debates.

Focusing on progress, practice, context and challenges, the contributors explore:

  • The status of SHRM in Ireland
  • SHRM in the recession
  • Talent management
  • Employee voice
  • Pay and performance
  • Knowledge and learning
  • International HRM
  • SHRM in knowledge-intensive firms
  • SHRM in small and medium-sized enterprises
  • SHRM in healthcare
  • Careers and career development
  • The limitations of SHRM

Featuring contributions from twenty-one leading Irish academics, Strategic HRM: Research and Practice in Ireland brings together a wealth of evidence on SHRM in Ireland. This book is an invaluable resource for undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students interested in exploring contemporary developments and research in SHRM, while also serving as a reflective resource for experienced executives.
