Associate Professor Elaine Farndale Publishes Book on Strategy, Human Resource Management, and Performance

"Strategy, HRM, and Performance" was published in Jan. 2018 by Oxford University Press.

Associate Professor of Human Resource Management Elaine Farndale, along with Jaap Paauwe, Professor of Human Resource Studies at Tilburg University, published the book, "Strategy, HRM, and Performance" earlier this year. The book was published in the United States by Oxford University Press in January 2018, and was released in the U.K. in November 2017. 

According to the Oxford University Press website, the book "expounds the macro-level relationship between strategy, HRM, and performance, addressing important challenges that have constrained research and practice to date. Adopting a critical perspective, the first challenge is a narrow definition of 'performance' that has been largely driven by a managerialist, profit motive, with little regard for the human element."
