Download and read online International Human Resource Management in PDF and EPUB International Human Resource Management tackles the issues raised by cross-national differences in HRM styles. Specifically, it identifies a number of themes: the meaning of globalization and the extent to which it is a novel phenomenon; the challenges to national traditions; the embeddedness of actors in distinct national styles; the way in which many key issues within international HRM are contested; and the extent to which change in national systems is evident.These themes underlie the treatment of the content of the book, which is split into two parts. The first part of the book examines the context of international HRM through an examination of the process of globalization and the origins of the distinctiveness of national business systems. The second part is concerned with particular issues relating to multinational companies, such as how and why they transfer practices across operations in different countries. In addition, this part tackles HR issues in international context, such as management development, pay and reward, and recruitment and selection. This book will appeal to undergraduates taking International HRM courses, those taking Masters programmes in HRM and MBA students. It may also be used as supplementary reading for comparative industrial relations courses that feature multinational companies.

With this increase in scale, the role of human resource management in sustaining this increase in international business activity is a central theme of this 5th Edition of our textbook. In writing this new edition we have retained much of the format that we developed for the 4th Edition while including expanded coverage of the international business context in which International Human Resource Management operates. The challenge of this 5th Edition has been to organize the complexities particular to HRM activities in multinational enterprises in such a way that provides teachers (of both undergraduate and graduate students) real choice as to how they will present the material. We have tried to find a balance that is meaningful and appropriate to the varying cultures represented by potential adopters and readers, and across educational traditions, institutions and forms, while accurately capturing the compelling realities facing HRM professionals practicing in multinational enterprises.
