Om boka

This book examines a new topic in Human Resource Management (HRM), green - or environmental - HRM, analysing the role humans play in environmental management at work and environmental behaviours at workplaces around the world.


The book begins with a focus on negative workplace green behaviours (e.g. toxic chemical leaks, air pollution, contaminated waste etc.), and what such environmental problems mean for workers, managers and society as a whole.


This book outlines relevant, underpinning academic theory and research literature on how HRM is 'going green', and details real-life organisational examples derived from original and secondary empirical research to illuminate the implications of adopting Green HRM practices for relevant stakeholders. In doing so, the book offers a new, academic contribution to both the HRM and environmental management literatures.
