During recent years there has been a growing interest in the way patterns of employment relations are changing in China. This up-to-the-minute book reviews the policy and practice of human resource management, work and employment in China over the last fifty years at both the macro and micro level. It fills the gaps in existing literature by addressing a number of thematic issues:
- the growing inequality in employment
- public sector reform
- pay systems
- vocational training.
It explores, contemplates and reveals this dynamic subject through a combination of rigorous research and first-hand interviews with Chinese practitioners, and is a valuable resource for anyone with an interest in Chinese society, Asian studies, comparative studies, human resource management, international business and employment relations.
