About the book
Mapped to the CIPD Level 7 module of the same name, International Human Resource Management is a critical textbook for all HR students. Structured around the three core areas of cross-cultural HRM, comparative HRM and international HRM itself, this book provides students with a thorough grounding in the key approaches to international HRM.
Packed with global examples and case studies to support learning, this book explores all aspects of international human resource management from global talent strategy, recruitment and knowledge management to the difference in reward systems across cultures and managing expatriate assignments making it essential reading for students on both CIPD and non-CIPD accredited courses.
Supported by 'theory and practice' boxes in every chapter and with reflective activities and learning questions throughout, International Human Resource Management ensures that students without real-world business experience fully understand the main concepts and how they apply in the world of work. This edition now includes new coverage of the impact of the gig economy on international HRM, how technology is impacting HRM across countries and new material on workforce diversity. Online resources include lecture slides and additional case studies.
