Contemporary Issues in Human Resources Management is aimed at senior undergraduate HR students and offers them practical insights into the working world of HR. One lecturer commented that it is one of the few books that “told the truth about HR”. The textbook is written by a group of local and international authors, as well as South African practitioners. It presents an integrated approach, applying both seminal and current theories and models to the contemporary workplace. It examines the latest developments within the field of HRM and discusses the impact on organisations of the current, often disruptive environment, including that of Covid-19 and the 4IR. It also provides the reader with the broad range of challenges and opportunities in the
field, and how HRM has evolved to promote growth and development. Topics are positioned in such a way so as to lend strategic and innovative perspectives to ensure success in local and global contexts.
