Prominent authors address current trends and business responses, the practices and methodology of human resource systems and those issues likely to be of greatest importance in the future. Chapters detailing the use of HRM by companies such as Chase Manhattan, GM, GE, and Westinghouse point out the implications and limitations of the concepts discussed.
