The intention behind Strategic HRM: Contemporary Issues in the Asia Pacific Region was to create a unique text in terms of both structure and content that is both useful and appealing to human resource scholars, practitioners and industry leaders. Although there is an increasing amount of literature being published on the topic of strategic human resource management the editors believe that this book contributes a distinctive product to the discipline area.

The book takes into account the changes that have been occurring in the global and domestic external environment and the consequent impact on workplaces and role expectations of human resource specialists.
