Asia Pacific Journal of Human Resource: Vol. 55 No. 3 July 2017
In this issue of the Asia Pasific Journal of Human Resources we present papers with a focus on the role and effects of human resource management and on line managers in the development and support of workplace innovations such as lean management, mindfulness and flexible working practices. Other papers cover topic areas such as changes to employee self-esteem following cosmetic facial surgery, and their impact on job satisfaction and burnout. All of the papers in this issue contribute to understanding the important role of human resource management in supporting and enabling workplace innovation so as to positively impact employee attitudes, worksplace behaviours and performance. As editors of the journal, we strongly encourage the submissions of manuscripts that examine the role of HRM in generating, enabling and even blocking workplace innovation.
