Numerous practical examples throughout the text highlight contemporary HR issues, such as:

  • Employee engagement 
  • Flexible working arrangements 
  • Work-life balance 
  • Generational issues in the workplace 
  • Skills shortages in various industries 
  • The importance of effective employee recruitment and training 
  • The cost of involuntary staff turnover 
  • Increasing diversity in the workplace 
  • Outsourcing
