Human Resource Policy
Connecting Strategy with Real-World Practice
Contemporary thought in HRM focuses to a large extent on HR strategy, but neglects the policy function as the vital link between strategy and practice. Human Resource Policy describes how policies anchor HR practice and connect HR to organisational strategy. It reaffirms the importance of policy and the need for practitioners to possess skills in the research, development, writing and implementation of HR policies. The book also examines 16 important policy areas and discusses the various policy options that might apply, depending on the organisation’s nature, the legal framework that applies to it and its strategic needs.
