Based on close collaboration with a number of high-profile organizations, this book sheds light on the organizational responses to large-scale changes and details the changing demands made of employees in the process. This book goes beyond fashionable management rhetoric to uncover the reality of human resource management. The team of top researchers examines: the organizational strategies pursued in the face of fast-changing circumstances, the links between what is intended and what is realized, the way in which HR interventions impact on the individual, and the influence which HR strategies have on everyday management behaviour.
