Description
‘The editors should be congratulated in producing a volume that goes beyond the traditional boundaries of the subject. . . There is a high standard maintained throughout the Handbook with chapters written by 48 authors from across the world. This allows discussion to move away from the traditional US-centric nature of the discipline and gives the book a truly international flavour. The range of scholars, from PhD candidates to established professors makes for an impressive collection, which should be widely read by human resource management and international business academics and practitioners alike.’

The second edition of this Handbook provides up-to-date insight into ground-breaking research on international human resource issues today. These issues are faced by multinational companies which can be as small as one person with a computer and Internet connection or as large as a medium-sized country.

Written by the field’s most distinguished researchers, the book will stimulate thought for new research and provide a glimpse of where we have been and where we are going. The book explores issues such as the importance of linking IHRM activities to organizational strategy and culture; talent management; staffing; performance management; leadership development; diversity management; international assignment and mobility issues; and the role of IHRM in the management of global teams and cross-border joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions.

The Handbook illustrates that IHRM research is both theoretically deep and eclectic. Drawing upon a range of paradigms and perspectives this compendium will prove invaluable for HRM scholars, doctoral students, and others interested in IHRM research.
