Yehuda Baruch is Professor of Management at Southampton Business School, the University of Southampton.
Baruch is one of the most accomplished scholars in the Careers (and not only) field. With his first book (Managing Careers: Theory and Practice) he offered a very much needed evidence-based textbook about careers and their management (importantly, seen from the perspectives of both career actors and organizations). The new book (Managing Careers and Employability) incorporates the significant advancements in the field since the publication of the first book. It was much anticipated and continues in the path of the first publication: founded on up-to-date research, but at the same time acknowledging the realities of employers and those who are in employment and pursue careers. It is able to convey the knowledge in a way that is understood and useful to a variety of audiences, ranging from taught courses students to practitioners and careers scholars.
What’s the best way to manage one’s career in today’s complex global work environment? What organizational strategies are most effective for enhancing employee career development, performance, and well-being? These questions, and many others, are addressed in Managing Careers and Employability by Yehuda Baruch.
Managing Careers and Employability provides students with a comprehensive review of how organizations strategically manage their employees’ careers for increased profitability and employee engagement while also offering students a practical guide for understanding how to make career choices for greater success and happiness. The book’s user-friendly format encourages students to reflect upon important career issues, ranging from job selection and work-family conflict to ethically building a diverse and productive international workforce. Each chapter encourages students’ active engagement as they complete self-assessments and analyze real-life cases. Written by one of the foremost experts in the field, students reading Managing Careers and Employability will gain a comprehensive understanding of careers based on cutting-edge theories and research.
