Managing People in a Multinational Context.

Peter Dowling

    Research output: Book/ReportAnthology


    As more firms move outside the domestic borders into the dynamic world of international business the globalisation of world markets appears to be gaining momentum. This globalisation of business is forcing managers to grapple with complex issues as they seek to gain or sustain a competitive advantage. Faced with unprecedented levels of foreign competition at home and abroad firms are beginning to recognize not only that international business is high on top management's list of priorities but that finding and nurturing the human resources required to implement an international or global strategy is of critical importance. International Human Resource Management is a new edition of this highly successful and groundbreaking text. Changes to the new edition include HR implications of international mergers and acquisitions, increased coverage of Strategic HRM, HR activities in different countries and cultures and increased coverage of the globalisation of HRM in small and medium enterprises. In addition the new edition includes a wealth of case study material and class discussion material. A full instructor's website is available to adopters.
