About This Book


‘This text surpasses all others in the field, as it is a succinct yet comprehensive coverage of the important area of HR policy. The author walks the reader through the path of designing, reviewing and analysing effective HR policies, and the laws and practices that underpin them.’
—Stephen Treloar, Dean and Academic Director, The Institute of International Studies, Sydney, Australia

‘A crucial issue in practical HR management is the need for dynamic policies. If HR practitioners are to truly partner with business, then policies cannot be the traditional “rule book” that forces compliance by limiting flexibility and rapid response. Constant refinement is essential to meet ever-changing business needs. This book skilfully fills that gap in the practitioner’s toolkit.’
—Helen Sitlington, Managing Director, Workplace Management Network, Perth, Australia
