With increasing globalization comes the need to understand human resource management (HRM) more broadly across countries, cultures, institutions, and organizational types. Designed to help readers explore and understand the key concepts and latest research behind the strategic management of people in organizations that operate in a global context, this accessible book provides concise coverage of HRM concepts, balancing comparative approaches and US and non-US schools of thought. Not limited to the multinational firm, the book reflects the most current knowledge in the field and considers all types of organizations embedded in the global context. Chapter-opening vignettes (short cases) exemplify the chapter's core topics and show readers how chapter content can be applied. Extensive references make it easy for readers to explore concepts in more depth.
