Download and read online Handbook of Research on Comparative Human Resource Management in PDF and EPUB 'Global HR practices are of incredible interest to scholars and practitioners. Brewster and Mayrhofer have done a masterful job selecting and organizing 26 incredible chapters on how to conceive, study, and practice HRM in diverse global settings. The compendium is thoughtful and thorough with integrated theoretical perspectives and unique insights on each major global region. It is an invaluable source book for those interested in global HR.' – Dave Ulrich, University of Michigan, US 'As the world becomes "flatter" and more interconnected, questions arise about the future of HRM. Which HRM systems are beginning or will begin to converge globally? Which systems will likely remain constrained by institutions or national culture and why? This book brings together the leading academic authorities and provides the essential starting point to answering these pressing questions.' – Patrick Wright, Cornell University, US This unique and path-breaking Handbook explores the issue of comparative Human Resource Management (HRM) and challenges the notion that there can be a 'one best way' to manage HRM. The Handbook of Research on Comparative Human Resource Management provides a theoretical, practical and regional analysis of comparative HRM. This book, edited by two specialists on comparative HRM and written by leading experts on each topic and from each region, explores the range of different approaches to conceptualising HRM, and highlights HRM policy and practice that occur in the various regions of the world. As such, the volume provides a challenge to the typical assumption that there are consistent problems in managing human resources around the globe that call for standardised solutions. Instead, the contributors emphasise the importance of institutional and cultural factors that make HRM a most context-sensitive management task. Offering a comprehensive view for readers with different interests, this insightful Handbook will prove to be an essential resource for academics, researchers and postgraduate students in international business, business administration, HRM, socio-economics and cross-cultural management. Practitioners interested in the cultural aspects of HRM will also find this Handbook invaluable.

Download and read online Handbook of International Human Resource Management in PDF and EPUB From the mid-1980s to the turn of the 1990s the international HR field was considered to be in its infancy. There continues to be both an evolution of territory covered by the field – a series of successively evolving cultural, geographical and institutional challenges faced by the multinational corporation (MNC) – as well as more critical questioning whether this has created an expanded or a fragmented field. This book brings together the latest research on important “issues-driven” concerns that the field of IHRM now has to face, absorb, interpret then reanalyse through international lenses. This volume gives attention to those aspects of MNC behaviour – choices about location, how they organize local subsidiaries, choices made about technology, capital and labour, and choices made about investments and strategies – that are subject to institutional influences. It also gives voice to a number of contemporary issues – reverse knowledge flows, skill supply strategies, employer branding, e-enablement, outsourcing, global networks – that now need to be accommodated within the field. Broadens the IHRM field to cover comparative and institutional perspectives Provides a multi-level analysis of globalization phenomena at the individual, organization, and macro level Focuses on the current problems and issues driving the attention of IHRM Directors
