Presently he is a practicing human resources management expert, who has an extended interest of documenting his every day experience in handling business and human interest related issues in the industry. His exposure to academics and industry has instilled a desire to come out with a ready reckoner on Human Resource Management. This book is largely based on his hands-on experience as HR practitioner in the industry. It contains details about the evolution of HR Management covering concepts, theories and their impact on the present and future projections in the field of HR Management. Along with the theoretical analysis he has covered legal aspects of HR Management and practical case incidents which enables the readers to get a complete feel of the subject.
