In this new, original book, Cecilie Bingham puts fairness, trust, organisational justice, and power at the heart of employment relationships in a variety of settings. Based on current research, mini-case studies, news items, and exercises, this thought-provoking text provides academic, practical and theoretical insights into the contested nature of contemporary work and employment relations at workplace level. It should become essential reading for students, scholars, practitioners and policy-makers in the field
This new text by Cecilie Bingham provides a welcome critical, reflective and contemporary perspective on the employment relationship in the UK and beyond. While the subject matter is both wide- ranging and topical, ranging from modern forms of slavery to zero hours contracts and 24/7 working, the reader- friendly analysis is lucidly informed by salient theory and never loses sight of power and asymmetry as defining characteristics in the employment relationship.
This text book is a valuable addition to the employment relations literature. The core themes of fairness and workplace justice will touch a chord with students whilst the insights and subject awareness will find a welcome with HR practitioners and academics. The short case studies enable the reader to relate the text to real world situations.
This highly readable book examines employment relations from the standpoint of fairness and organisational justice. Chapters include recent relevant case examples and newsflash reports, making tangible issues in academic debates. Questions and exercises encourage reflection on concepts, perspectives and styles of employee relations management. The book is a very valuable addition to the resources on hand for those taking and those teaching employee relations, and is suitable for CIPD accredited courses.
A practical approach to employee relations
An invaluable resource for HR practitioners whether undertaking CIPD Level 5 or 7 HRM programmes or as a 'best friend' in the workplace. A straight-forward, no-nonsense approach to managing employee relations, drawing on the passion of the author for managing this key area of people management appropriately in today's ever-changing world.
The book seems written in an a-contextual manner and it is therefore not quite suitable for international studies on employment relations. I would have liked to see more emphasis on labour markets and different types of employment practices.
This is an excellent book for anyone studying HRM, good business case studies and best practice throughout. strong links to course material and helpful for the managing people module.
This book is important for understanding the updated organisational behaviour concepts, such as trust, conflict, etc.
