Over the last few decades, rapid changes have affected organizations' perspectives about employees. One change could be globalisation which caused a tough competition for enterprises. This competition has forced organisations to change the way of doing business which also affected people's expectations from organizations. Other changes include technological, societal, demographical, political, legal, and cultural transformations. These changes have raised awareness of paying attention to the importance of valuing human resources among employers and employees. Therefore, human resources researches have been attractive to business and academic environments to solve problems at work. For instance, globalisation has enabled employees to migrate to other countries and this situation caused to work in a culturally different work environment. Migrating to other countries has created both positive and negative consequences e.g. employers have obtained the talented employees they required and employees have reached to the desired labour market. Employers and employees have benefited from technological developments immensely. But also, it is argued that technology has deteriorated human relations. Ageing has become a major issue for employers rapid changing environment, especially adapting new changes, decreased performance and absenteeism. Opposed to ageing issues, having a rising and modernised education level created opportunities for finding better employees and employers. 
Political and legal changes e.g. minimum wage, maximum working hours and union rights have guaranteed employees' working conditions and rights. In this context, researches of the human resources have concentrated on employees' work-related as well as personal life issues. This book is intended to cover current and future changes, issues, solutions of human resources management from an improving, critical, innovative and contemporary standpoint.


This book aims to examine attitudes, behaviours, experience, expectations of employees and employers about HR Management in a rapidly changing business environment. In this context, we would like to contribute to the field by shedding light on current trends of Human Resources functions e.g. planning, recruiting, orienting, developing and training and appraising of employees as well as managing industrial relations. In order to meet this aim, we invite authors to focus on especially workplace issues that employees encounter before, during and after employment e.g. discrimination, bullying, conflicts, emotions, ethics, participation and work-life balance. We expect that this book will not only expand the literature but also increase awareness among practitioners. Due to the rising trends such as intellectual capital and talent management, employees are considered more valuable to organizations. Thus, we expect related to mentioned HR issues with an interdisciplinary and critically point of view.
