Based on the Corporate Environment text this book provides human resource managers and students with an introduction to the key themes, issues and concepts which can be used to make sense of developments in the external environment facing their organization. The authors examine a range of theories used to explain external influences. Case studies and exercises are used throughout to enhance student understanding. The text should be appropriate for the CIPD syllabus on managing in a business context. Each chapter provides distinct links to HRM policy and practice and case studies are included to exemplify theory in practice. There is a strong section on employment law written by an employment law author and coverage of current issues such as environmental issues, business ethics and social responsibility. Material is included on change and technology and emphasis placed on strategic and global issues. Included is an instructor's manual.
