Storey, John and Wright, Patrick M. (2023). Strategic Human Resource Management: A Research Overview [2nd Edition]. State of the Art in Business Research. Abingdon Oxon and New York: Routledge.



This new, updated shortform book provides a concise expert summary of key issues in the theory and practice of the management of human resources – one of the most crucial elements driving organizational performance.

As human resource management strategies evolve over time, this new edition pays special regard to the HR challenges arising from radically altering contexts – economic, social and technological. For example, the book examines research reports on the impact of COVID and other disruptions to the global world of work. It also assesses recent HR initiatives and priorities such as Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and the HR implications of remote and hybrid working. The book assesses contemporary critiques that HR is part of the problem, not the solution. In sum, the book offers a route-map through the extensive terrain of contemporary research projects and findings.

Serving as a unique researcher’s guide, this concise book enables readers to develop ideas for future research and such is essential reading for management scholars and reflective practitioners.
