European Human Resource Management is an introductory text for students of human resource management. The book examines HRM from a cross-cultural perspective in order to determine whether there is one universal model of HRM or many nationally specific models that reflect a variety of cultural and institutional contexts. It is suggested that the answer to the question 'What is HRM?' is dependent upon the national context within which it is asked. What may be termed HRM in one nation may take on a very different form in another nation despite similarity in terminology. Eurpoean Human Resource Management shows how such factors as a nation's culture, industrial relations system, education system and legal system influence the ways in which the employment relationship is structured and conceived in seven European nations:DenmarkFranceGermanyGreat BritainThe NetherlandsSpainSwedenIn addition, European Human Resources Management considers the extent to which notions of HRM in these nations are converging or diverging. It suggests that whilst there is evidence of a trend towards convergence, differences in cultural and institutional contexts between nations continue to have a major impact on the nature of the employment relationship.
