When the first edition of this breakthrough text was published in 1990, transnational corporations and their foreign affiliates accounted for 24 million workers. That figure has since skyrocketed to 62 million workers worldwide. The critical role of human resource management in sustaining this increase in international business activity is a central theme of the exciting new edition of INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT: MANAGING PEOPLE IN A MULTINATIONAL CONTEXT. Offering an even stronger global emphasis, the fifth edition draws from the expertise of its expanded author team, which now includes tri-continental representation from Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America. A true international work, the text strikes a balance that is meaningful and appropriate to the varying cultures represented by instructors and readers as it accurately captures the compelling realities facing HRM professionals practicing in multinational enterprises today. With expanded coverage of the international business context in which IHRM operates, this edition covers such rapidly developing topic areas as new strategic forms as they impact HRM capabilities and processes, effectiveness in repatriation, transpatriation practices and strategic uses of global careers, ROI of expatriate assignments, the complexities of standardizing and customizing HRM practices and activities across local environments, specific IHRM challenges of offshoring in India and China, multinational family-owned firms, safety and security issues in an age of global risk and uncertainty, and much more. Packed with examples, practical cases, and cutting-edge insight, INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT, 5e equips students with a thorough understanding of the key role of HRM in today's increasingly global and complex marketplace.
