'There is considerable rigour behind the work and the contexts are well positioned. The books have excellent HR data for not only businesses, but employees considering a transfer to an international location. In addition to the primary authors cadres of industry advisors were assembled of considerable status and representing mainstream organisations and unions. The countries covered total twenty one and, in addition, there is a summary chapter in volume two on issues, trends and implications. Obviously there are other reference points available on single countries and indeed dual country comparisons, but this work is timely, highly relevant and extremely valuable. It is recommended most highly.' – Geoffrey N. De Lacy, Australian Human Resource Institute Journal 'A very welcome and valuable addition to the literature, this two-volume handbook covers current HRM policies and practices in all 21 APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) member economies. For the first time, we have single-source access to a codified set of macro-level HRM profiles for APEC membership economies . . . this project helps fill the need for systematic and accurate HRM data in a very large geographic area, including four continents divided by the Pacific Ocean . . . this is an impressive compilation and will benefit government and business organizations when formulating strategy for employment relations. It will also assist those in the academic sector with the research and teaching of cross-cultural management issues. It should be a welcome addition to most academic and special libraries with interests in the Asia and the Pacific.' – David A. Flynn, Business Information Alert It is becoming increasingly recognised that the way in which human resources are managed is a key source of sustainable competitive advantage for business. Nowhere, Michael Zanko argues, is this seen to be more relevant than in the Asia-Pacific region. The aim of the Handbook and its systematically codified economy human resource management (HRM) profiles is to improve knowledge and understanding of HRM policy and practices in the Asia-Pacific region. It serves as a practical guide to predominantly macro-level HRM policies and practices in ten APEC economies, covering Australia, Chinese Taipei (Taiwan), Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, People's Republic of China, Thailand and the United States of America. The Handbook of Human Resource Management Policies and Practices in Asia-Pacific Economies Volume I will be essential reading for lecturers, researchers, academics and managers concerned with human resource management, international business, management, and cross-cultural studies. The Handbook will also be of great interest to those involved in industrial and employment relations.

Macroeconomic research on human capital - the stock of human capabilities and knowledge - has been extensively published but to date the literature has lacked a comprehensive analysis of human capital within the organization. The Oxford Handbook of Human Capital has been designed to fill that gap, providing an authoritative, inter-disciplinary, and up to date survey of relevant concepts, research areas, and applications. Specially commissioned contributions from over 40 authors reveal the importance of human capital for contemporary organizations, exploring its conceptual underpinnings, relevance to theories of the firm, implications for organizational effectiveness, interdependencies with other resources, and role in the future economy. Unlike neoclassical macroeconomic concepts of human capital, human capital in organizations is shown to be dynamic and heterogeneous, requiring new theories and management frameworks. The systemic role of human capital is explored, revealing it as the lynchpin of social, structural and other forms of intangible and tangible capital. Connections between human capital and organizational performance are investigated from HR management, procurement, alignment, value appropriation, and accounting perspectives. Links between micro and macro perspectives are provided through analyses of inter firm human capital mobility, national and regional human capital formation regimes and industry employment relations practices. This Handbook is designed for scholars and graduate students of organization and management theory, strategy, entrepreneurship, knowledge and intellectual capital, accounting, IT, HR, IR, economic sociology and cultural studies. For policy makers and practitioners it should provide an up to date guide to the nature and role of human capital in contemporary organizations and the roles that government, industry and other extra firm institutions can play in facilitating its development.

Chapter 1 With the shift from “human resources” to “human capital management” (HCM), public agencies are striving to strategically manage their workforces. Sally Selden’s groundbreaking book moves far beyond describing best practices and offers the context in which innovative practices have been implemented. She details how agencies are creating performance-aligned workforces by adopting systems and policies that are driven by their strategic missions. This book covers core topics of personnel courses—including hiring, training, retention, performance, and recognition—but also includes integrated coverage on measuring success through assessment. Further helping readers grasp how HCM works, the book uses original data from the Government Performance Project and incorporates many comparative examples across a wide range of states, plus federal and municipal agencies. Unlike anything else available, Human Capital fills a critical gap for both students and public personnel professionals.
