âThe best feature is the shift towards giving more attention to the influence of the EU, globalization and a deeper look at the nature of the labour market. I would like to see a second edition of the text published. After a fallow period, ER is an expanding area of interest again.â John Kimberley, University of Central England âGenerally seems in line with previous text â which was quite student friendly, generally a popular text on the subject. Required reading â one of 2 texts recommended for purchaseâ¦ Leat or Blyton & Turnbull: Dynamics of Employee Relationsâ Ian Roper, Middlesex University âYes â would meet the needs of the module for which I have been using it â a third year undergrad module on Employee Relations which forms part of a number of different Business subject degrees. For use in my post grad teaching (part of the CIPD accredited MSc in HRM) the text would need the additional chapter on handling conflict/industrial action referred to. The increasing number of international students on both UG and PG programmes would make a more generic text (as described) useful. Main text for undergrad ER module â approx 100 students per year. Could also be one of number of recommended texts for PG modules â varying numbers. Have been using the first edition for UG module â was planning to change to a more up to date text.â Fiona Oldham, Napier University
