Trust and Transition: Managing Today's Employment Relationship

Herriot P, Hirsh W, Reilly P |   | John Wiley & Sons | Feb 1998

Constant organisational change has led to new challenges for the HR department. In some instances it has created problems.

This book identifies the two key problems facing senior managers and HR directors: employees' feelings of mistrust and insecurity, and their effects on the employment relationship; and the speed of organisational change which requires employees to make continuous transitions.

This book shows that the management of careers in organisations is still possible if career transitions are negotiated with employees, supported by management, and hence recreate trust.

The authors outline the analytical, managerial and leadership tasks facing those seeking to manage careers in a climate of constant change. Fully illustrated with case studies, this book will be of enormous use to any director concerned with the future success of the organisation.
