Abstract

Edited by three renowned specialists in comparative human resource management (CHRM) this expanded and updated Handbook explores the range of approaches for conceptualizing CHRM and highlights different policies and practices across the world. Leading experts challenge the assumption that there are consistent solutions for managing human resources across nations. Valuing the importance of context, particularly at a national and regional level, the chapter authors question the best practice' solutions by discussing theoretical, issue-based and regional-based distinctions in HRM. New to this edition: * an extended focus on the most essential theoretical underpinnings of CHRM including an anthropological comparative method; * additional in-depth studies in comparative areas covering the range of current HRM practice, including sustainable HRM; * a broader set of countries and regions now including Central and South America, North and Sub-Saharan Africa, and Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines, to create the most comprehensive global coverage of comparative CHRM research. This extensive Handbook is an essential resource for researchers and postgraduate students in international business, business administration, HRM, socio-economics and cross-cultural management.
