This exciting text tackles the issues raised by cross-national differences in HRM styles. It offers a readable introduction to International HRM, identifying a number of key themes: the meaning of globalization and the extent to which it is a novel phenomenon; the challenges to national traditions; the way in which many key issues within International HRM are contested; and the extent to which change in national systems is evident. The book is made up of two parts. The first part of the book examines the context of international HRM, examining the process of globalization and the origins of the distinctiveness of national business systems. The second part is concerned with specific issues relating to multinational organisations, 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. Ideal for 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.
