"The text is well referenced and researched to provide coverage at post-graduate level. The locating of case studies throughout the text is an unusually positive feature of the book in that few good case studies are available in other reward text books.The short questions are a good idea they break up the chapter content and give the students something practical on which to base the ideas they are absorbing."
Sally Howe, Lecturer, University of West of England

"The text offers a good level of analytical detail within an accessible style. The text sticks well to its subject, and has good treatment of issues of current and topical interest. A range of practical examples are provided, and the balance of examples seem appropriate, being drawn from all employment sectors, including the public and not-for-profit sectors. The variety and currency of the examples and the case studies is one of the strengths of the text. There are useful cross-references to other parts of the book, and such assistance improves the overall value of a text. The text adds a valuable new dimension in terms of analytical approach and accessible ideas on current issues."
Andrew Leleux, ClPD Programme Leader, Buckinghamshire Business School
