About the eBook

Thoroughly revised and updated to include contemporary terms that have gained importance such as furlough, unconscious bias, platform work, and Great Resignation, this second edition of the Encyclopedia of Human Resource Management is an authoritative and comprehensive reference resource comprising almost 400 entries on core HR areas and concepts.

Bringing together more than 200 international authorities on HRM and HR, the Encyclopedia presents an accessible and condensed overview of key HR topics, spanning from absenteeism and big data to whistleblowing and zero-hour contracts. Entries vary from singular concepts such as homeworking, equality, and digitalisation; to organisational behaviour terms such as organisational culture and job satisfaction; and broader management terms such as strategy and management development. Each entry provides a selected list of references and suggestions for further reading to enable the reader to gain a deeper awareness of the topic.

An authoritative reference text, this dynamic Encyclopedia will be of immense value to undergraduate and postgraduate students, academic researchers, and HR practitioners and policy specialists looking for a succinct and expert summary of key HR concepts.
