Now in its fifth edition, Wärnich’s Human Resource Management in South Africa provides the complete introduction to Human Resource Management in the challenging business world of modern day South Africa.

Dramatic changes in both the external and internal environment of organisations in South Africa since the beginning of the twenty-first century have resulted in employees increasingly expecting to be part of the decision-making process. This change, combined with developments in technology, means that human resource (HR) managers are now faced with new and important challenges.

In this situation, increasing pressure is being exerted on HR managers in South Africa to make a more significant contribution to the success of their organisations – how can organisations in South Africa deal with the complexity, speed and magnitude of these changes and still create and achieve a competitive advantage?

  • The new edition fully addresses the latest human resource management (HRM) legislation, techniques, procedures and practices which are needed to successfully address the challenges faced by companies and aspiring HR professionals. This provides invaluable real-life contextualisation for students.
  • Throughout, the new edition emphasises to students, the crucial importance of the well-being of employees to any organisation’s chances of ultimate success, and how people are the most important asset to a business.
  • The practical examples and extensive case studies presented in this book fully illustrate the diversity and the richness of current initiatives used to improve the science and practice of human resource management in South Africa, thus ensuring that students can directly relate their studies to the reality of working life in South Africa.
  • The balanced mix of chapters, emphasising diverse approaches and practices from leading organisations, enables students to draw lessons and guidelines from the experiences shared in this book and so further enrich their knowledge and understanding.

Given the common acknowledgement that strategy implementation is the greatest challenge to managers in the 21st century and the greatest reason for strategy failure we decided to focus on strategy implementation. Rather than promoting the unrealistic idea of strategy as a purely rational and deliberate outcome, this book acknowledges and explores the idea that strategy is often emergent, messy and experimental. We focus on strategy as something that people do rather than something that an organisation possesses. Since people are the building blocks of strategy, we recognise the fact that strategy is both a cognitive and a political activity.

When people think about the business world, they tend to think more about the political economy of operating environments than the intricacies of ethics and diversity management in offshore locations. However, all these factors are equally pertinent to successful global business management and a successful international business.

Globalisation and technological innovation also need to be considered. And while the controversy that surrounds globalisation has tainted the proceeds of growth and economic prosperity, the improvement in quality of life brought about by technological advances in global financial integration cannot be overemphasised.
