Rate this:
This book examines the development of employers' human resource management and industrial relations policies in Britain. It adopts a broad historical perspective, beginning with the inheritance from the 19th century and coming up to date with modern human resource management policies. It focuses on how managers organize the work relationship, how they control work relations, and how they deal with trade unions and industrial relations. The author examines these in the context of the market within which the firm operates, and the strategy, structure and hierarchy of the modern industrial enterprise, developing a theoretical approach which emphasizes the effect of these factors on management choices.
