Essentials of International Human Resource Management
is a concise and applied textbook which explores HR strategies and approaches for a range of organizations that operate internationally. Key topics covered include core HR functional areas, expatriation and repatriation, managing cultural differences and equality, diversity and inclusion. It also explores how relevant political, socio-economic, technological and cultural contexts impact on international HR, with case study examples such as BAE Systems and Changan Ford.

Focusing on both established and emerging economies, the book examines international employment relations, as well as cutting-edge topics including CSR, emotional and cultural intelligence, work-life balance and the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic. With in-text features including learning outcomes, key concept boxes and activities as well as online resources consisting of PowerPoint lecture slides, self-test questions and further resource and video links, this is an essential resource for master's level and upper undergraduate students of international HRM.
