In providing an insightful overview of a wide range of global human resource issues facing MNCs, this pathbreaking Handbook highlights emergent topics and new research findings that could shape the field of future IHRM research.
Theoretical discussion of the variables and processes that affect IHRM policies and practices is provided by renowned contributors with widely differing academic backgrounds, paradigmatic orientations, and theoretical and methodological approaches. They explore extensive subject matter including:
* the importance of linking IHRM policies and activities to organizational strategy
* staffing, performance management, leadership development, and diversity management
* international assignment and mobility issues
* the role of IHRM in the management of global teams and cross-border joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions.
Illustrating that IHRM research is theoretically eclectic, and drawing upon a range of paradigms and perspectives, this cutting-edge Handbook will be invaluable to academics and practitioners with an interest in human resource management, industrial and employment relations, management and international business.
The present volume is directed to the scholarly community – our intention was to put together a book on IHRM studies that would serve as a guide to existing and future IHRM researchers from all parts of the world. Hence, our main target audience is our own colleagues, doctoral students, and others interested in IHRM research.
The goal with this book has been to bring together leading IHRM scholars to provide a comprehensive overview of the field, including emerging topic areas and exciting new research findings that may shape the field of IHRM research in the years to come. The 48 authors of the 29 chapters that form this Handbook were encouraged to not only critically review previous research within the scope of their chapters, but also to provide a foundation for and concrete suggestions how we through forthcoming research are to further develop our knowledge of important issues in the area of IHRM. The authors are affiliated with academic institutions located in Europe, North America, Africa, Asia, and Australia, lending the Handbook a truly global flavour.
