The field of international Human Resources Management has enjoyed a massive increase in popularity in the 1990s, as European integration draws ever closer and the internationalization/globalization debate gains momentum. This title represents an up-to-date collection on the topic, by many of Europe's leading scholars working in the area. The wide range of experience and perspectives included in this text is designed to provide a thought-provoking read for students, academics and practitioners. Taking a thematic approach, the text draws on national experiences from Belgium, China and Finland, to illuminate the current issues and debates in this area: globalization versus localization, the management of rewards and performance appraisal. The combination of recent empirical studies and a strong conceptual base should make this a valuable text for undergraduates, IPD students and policy makers.
