This insightful Handbook examines how labour unions across the world have experienced and responded to the growth of neo-liberalism. Since the 1970s, the spread of neo-liberalism across the world has radically reconfigured the relationship between unions, employers and the state. The contributors highlight that this is the major cause and effect of union decline and argue that if there is to be any union revitalisation and return to former levels of influence, then unions need to respond in appropriate political and practical ways. Written in a clear and accessible style, the Handbook examines unions' efforts to date in many of the major economies of the world, providing foundations for understanding each country. Policymakers, analysts, academics, researchers and advanced students in employment, industrial and labour relations as well as political economy will find this unique Handbook an important resource to understanding the contemporary plight and activity of labour unions.

Human Capital Management (HCM) has been described as a high-level strategic issue that seeks to analyse, measure and evaluate how people policies and practices create value. Put simply, HCM is about creating and demonstrating the value that great people and great people management add to an organization. This unique book describes how HCM provides a bridge between human resource management and business strategy. It also demonstrates how organizations can use the concepts of human resource management and the processes involved to enhance the value they obtain from people while continuing to meet their aspirations and needs. Armstrong and Baron explain how to achieve these objectives using various approaches including: Describing the concepts of HCM and how the process works; Examining the practice of HCM with regard to measurement and reporting; Discussing the various applications of HCM with regard to HR strategy formulation, learning and development, knowledge management, performance management, reward management and talent management; and examining the role of HR in HCM and the future of the concept. It also contains an appendix a toolkit which organizations can use to develop their own HCM policies and practices.
