The Global Challenge: Frameworks for International Human Resource Management

PUCIK Vladimir, EVANS Paul, BJORKMAN Ingmar, MORRIS S.
The Global Challenge: Frameworks for International Human Resource Management (3rd Ed.) (2016) 532 p.

The Global Challenge takes a general management perspective on the issues international human resources, since strategy, organizational capabilities, and people management are increasingly intertwined in multinational firms. Each chapter in this book is a stand-alone guide to a particular aspect of international human resource management (HRM)– from the history and overview of international human resource management in the first chapter to the functional implications for human resource professionals in the last, from building multinational coordination to managing the human side of cross-border acquisitions.

The authors build on the traditional agenda of international human resource management—how to respond to cultural and institutional differences, manage cross-border mobility, and develop global leaders. These issues were already discussed in the first two editions of this book, and this new edition contains the latest advances from research and practice.
