[Extract] The aim of this chapter is to introduce the field of sustainable HRM to advance the understanding of human resource management in achieving sustainability outcomes for organisations and promote the synthesis effect. To achieve this aim four areas are covered. Firstly, the evolution of HRM practices is briefly discussed to highlight the additional value sustainable HRM adds to strategic HRM which is a relatively recent development in the field of HRM. This discussion on evolution also provides a short overview on different perspectives used in strategic HRM. Secondly, multiple definitions for sustainable HRM are discussed. Thirdly, a synthesis paradox framework of sustainable HRM is proposed to achieve corporate sustainability by satisfying the competing expectations of stakeholders (e.g. organisation, society’s sustainable environmental management expectations, employees and their family members). Fourthly, the importance of sustainable HRM in the twenty-first century is discussed. Finally, the barriers to the development and implementation of sustainable HRM are indicated.
