HRM in the UK: Issues and Trends
Overall, HRM in the UK remains as fixed in its environment as HRM in any other country. It shares some aspects with the USA and some with Europe, but it remains distinctive. The basic HRM functions and the basic situation of HRM appear to change much more slowly than many of the specialists and commentators, especially the large consultancies, would have us believe. There are some new issues that seem to be absorbing a lot of energy of HR specialists at the moment - e-HRM, dealing with an aging workforce, and talent management and coaching - and it will be interesting to see whether they become embedded in the scene or turn out to be passing fads.
