About this book

This book explores the effective management of HR functions in an African context. While previous research has thoroughly explored central issues such as staffing, benefits, employee relations, and HR compliance, other topics such as appraisals, promotion, succession planning, and exits have rarely been considered. The author draws on empirical research and incorporates contextual issues such as technology, politics, culture, and economics to enrich readers’ understanding of HR in Africa’s emerging economies. By highlighting theoretical underpinnings while also placing emphasis on the practical relevance of HR issues, this book offers an insightful guide for students and scholars interested in HR and management in developing economies.
