Globalizing Human Resource Management

By Paul Sparrow; Chris Brewster et al. | Go to book overview

Foreword

Global Human Resource Management is a series of books edited and authored by some of the best and most well-known researchers in the field of human resource management. This series is aimed at offering students and practitioners accessible, coordinated and comprehensive books in global HRM. To be used individually or together, these books cover the main bases of comparative and international HRM. Taking an expert look at an increasingly important and complex area of global business, this is a ground-breaking new series that answers a real need for serious textbooks on global HRM.

Several books in this Routledge series are devoted to human resource management policies and practices in multinational enterprises. Some books focus on specific areas of HRM policies and practices, such as global leadership, global compensation, global staffing and global labor relations. Other books address special topics that arise in multinational enterprises such as managing HR in cross-border alliances and managing legal systems for multinational enterprises. This book, Globalizing Human Resource Management by Paul Sparrow, Chris Brewster and Hilary Harris, does a superb job of describing the roles of the HR function, the HR professional and the HR profession in multinational enterprises. The authors provide a wealth of company examples to illustrate their discussions of such topics as measuring the contribution of the HR function, knowledge management in multinational enterprises and developing global HR professionals.

In addition to books on various HRM topics in multinational enterprises, several other books in the series adopt a comparative approach to understanding human resource management. These books on comparative human resource management describe the HRM policies and practices found at the local level in selected countries in several regions of the world. The comparative books utilize a common framework that makes it easier for the reader to systematically understand the rationale for the existence of various human resource management activities in different countries and easier to compare these activities across countries.

This Routledge series, Global Human Resource Management, is intended to serve the growing market of global scholars and practitioners who are seeking a deeper and broader understanding of the role and importance of human resource management in
