Abstract

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 conceptualizing HRM, and highlight HRM policy and practice that occur in the various regions of the world. As such, the volume provides a challenge to the typical assumptions that there are consistent problems in managing human resources around the globe that call for standardized solutions. Instead, the contributors emphasize 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 to be of invaluable interest.
