About this book


This edited collection examines human resource management in organizations other than those that are set up to make a profit. Covering human resource management in a number of different kinds of mission-driven organizations, the book explores organizations in sectors and industries such as the governmental and intergovernmental public sector, volunteer organizations and charities, religious organizations, cultural organizations, sports organizations and B-corporations. Recognizing the reality of management practice in the (many small) organizations covered by the book, the chapters deal with the way that people are actually managed whether or not there is an HRM department present. Students of business management and human resource management will find this book invaluable as a source of knowledge on not for profit organizations, as many of the chapters include detailed examples and case studies.
