This title focuses on the practical application of human resource management (HRM) theories and research in a New Zealand context. The authors point out that HR practitioners and academics need to be cautious about the uncritical acceptance and application of research findings and practices developed internationally. A great many contextual factors (national legislative requirements, comparative union reach and strength, labour market conditions etc.) necessitate a careful consideration of how well HRM practices transfer across national boundaries. Therefore, reference to New Zealand research and human resource (HR) practice is included throughout, bedded within a strategic and international research-based foundation. This book updates and replaces the earlier book Managing Human Resources in New Zealand 2e by Macky & Johnson. New chapters have been added (Ch 3, 4, 10, 12, 2, 8) and other chapters extensively updated and restructured. With a sound foundation based on contemporary research and a strong practical element, this title is useful to current practitioners wishing to update their knowledge and students considering careers in HRM or general management.
