Now in its sixth edition, Warnich's Human Resource Management in South Africa provides the complete introduction to Human Resource Management in the challenging business world of modern day South Africa. Dramatic changes in both the external and internal environment of organisations in South Africa since the beginning of the twenty-first century have resulted in employees increasingly expecting to be part of the decision-making process. This change, combined with developments in technology, means that human resource (HR) managers are now faced with new and important challenges. In this situation, increasing pressure is being exerted on HR managers in South Africa to make a more significant contribution to the success of their organisations - how can organisations in South Africa deal with the complexity, speed and magnitude of these changes and still create and achieve a competitive advantage?

South African Human Resource Management, now in its sixth edition, answers the ever-growing demand for a human resource management (HRM) compendium specific to South Africa. Written by South Africans for South Africans, the book contextualises HRM locally and within the wider African context and demonstrates why HRM is central to the sustainable development challenges we face.
This update covers contemporary HR trends in South Africa and the SABPP’s National HR Management System Standard and its supporting process of ongoing development of Professional Practice Standards. It contains cutting-edge information for complete streams of HRM studies, and now includes numerous public-sector examples and connections, making it an indispensable tool for those practising (or aspiring to practise) HRM in public-sector organisations.

This textbook focuses on the connections between psychological theory and human resource management within the South African context.
South African higher education students have for the years 2015 and 2016 stood up to demand not only a free education but a decolonised, African-focused education. The calls for decolonisation of knowledge are the ultimate call for freedom. Without the decolonisation of knowledge, Africans may feel their liberation is inchoate and their efforts to shed Western dominance all come to naught.
Over the years various African leaders including Steve Biko wrote about the need to decolonise knowledge. The call for decolonisation is largely being equated with the search for an African identity that looks critically at Western hegemony. Biko sought the black people to understand their origins; to understand black history and affirm black identity. These are all embedded in the struggle to decolonise and search for African values and identities.
The contributors in this book treat several but connected themes that define what Africa and the diaspora require for a society devoid of colonialism and ready for a renewed Africa. “The discussions we develop and the philosophies we adopt on Pan Africanism and decolonisation are due to a bigger vision and for many of us the destination is African renaissance”. Everyone has a role to play in realising African renaissance; government, churches, universities, schools, cultural organisations all have a role to play in this endeavour.

Employment relations, traditionally known as industrial or labour relations, forms an integral part of the activities of labour, employers and the government in business. It centres on balancing, integrating and reconciling the partly common and partly divergent interests of these parties. South African employment relations has reached the milestone of having been available for more than a quarter of a century and is the longest running book in this field in South Africa. This 8th edition of South African employment relations redefines the various role players in employment relations management and broadens the field to incorporate them. It brings the direction the labour market is going in terms of collective bargaining into sharper focus and proposes ways in which fair workplace relations can be established. It furthermore deals with the latest legislative developments, union activities and other contemporary issues. Besides the case studies and a comprehensive glossary, this edition now includes short inserts entitled "ER in practice" to highlight the challenges posed by industry and the business community, and to empower readers and practitioners to utilise the insights gained from these examples with confidence in their daily business activities.

Dismissal remains the most thorough and comprehensive work available on a problem that confronts employers, lawyers, judges and arbitrators every working day - when is it fair to terminate the relationship with employees, for whatever reason this regrettable step may be deemed necessary? This work deals with all the circumstances in which dismissals arise and are challenged - from dismissals for misconduct and incapacity, through retrenchments, automatically unfair dismissals, dismissals of protected and unprotected strikers, to the procedures required before such dismissals can lawfully be effected and challenged. Written in the clear and readable style for which the author has become acclaimed, the exposition of each principle is illustrated with examples drawn from the case law. This third edition adds many judgments handed down since the second edition was published four years ago, and incorporates judgments law and statutory amendments that have been handed down or enacted since then. Dismissal forms a volume in a quartet by the author, and should where necessary be read with its companion volumes - Employment Rights, Collective Labour Law and Labour Litigation & Dispute Resolution.

Dr Mark Bussin has consistently contributed to the development of a host of human resource managers in the remuneration field in Africa via his corporate and consulting experience, wise counsel, writings, and hundreds of lectures, TV and radio interviews. He has developed a generation of remuneration experts, helped define the field of practice, and made a significant contribution to the national level of excellence in the field.
How we remunerate employees reflects the dynamics of the market and context in which we operate. It aligns at all times to the strategic direction and specific value drivers of the businesses within which our organisation operates. Remuneration plays a critical role in attracting, motivating and retaining high-performing individuals. Remuneration also reinforces, encourages and promotes superior performance.
Through variable remuneration linked to value drivers, superior performance is recognised and rewarded, while poor performance and under-achievement are coached and managed. Remuneration is never a stand-alone management process, but is rather fully integrated into other management processes, such as the performance management process, and the overall Human Resources policies.
This book is about the most important and valuable resource of today, the management and development of human resources. The authors of this publication have attempted to scan the horizon of international best practices in the field of human resource development.
The authors have identified international best practices and integrated them into the principles of the National Qualifications Framework and South African Qualifications Authority requirements, and also aligned with the National Skills Development Strategy vision for 2015.
