Objective: Examine contemporary global HR practices to evaluate operations and managerial performance.
Introduction: HRM is more for the international company than for its domestic counterparts. Besides dealing with HRM needs in its home market, the international company must adjust its HRM practices for a variety of reasons related to customs, culture, and government regulatory restrictions and policy. These differences can impede employee relations and ultimately productivity. International human resources needs are partially determined by the firmâ€™s degree of globalization (business structure, relationship position, and foreign investments) and by its relative degree of centralization versus decentralization. Since the functionality of HR is central to a firmâ€™s success, top managers should adopt a strategic perspective.
