From the Back Cover:

MASTERING BUSINESS IN ASIA

HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

This book is one of the best I have ever read for HR practitioners. The analyses and the experiences documented in it are invaluable. I would recommend that all managers - including HR and non-HR ones - keep a copy of this book as their desk reference, so as to help keep themselves abreast of the rich historical as well as current HR developments that have transpired in Asia. - Associate Professor, Lim Ghee Soon, NUS Business School

It is extremely important for multinationals doing business in Asia to modify and localize their best practices including HR programs, instead of merely importing or adopting specific programs. However, far too many HR programs fail to create impact because they fail to realize the transition countries in Asia need to make before adopting specific HR tools or initiatives. This book is highly relevant in that it presents numerous HR case studies, interviews and research pieces presented in an easy-to-read manner. A must read for CEOs managing Asia, for Asia-based HR professionals or for global HR heads looking at best ways to solve people-related challenges across Asia. - Charles D. Lake II, President, America Family Life Assurance Company, Japan

Balanced perspectives about business in Asia have lately become rare as the positive and negative extremes dominate discussions. Thanks to Mercer for moving us back to the centre with this valuable overview of HR in Asia. Practical commentary is interwoven with history. economics and case studies to provide a full context for all of us, Asian and non-Asian, who delight in these challenges and rewards. - James Stoudt, Human Resources Operations Director, Asia Pacific, GlaxoSmithKline

From the Inside Flap:

How do CEOs, CFOs or CHROs manage the economic geography called Asia? When top managers talk about their "Asian employees", who comes to mind? Is it the Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Thai, Malaysian, Indonesian, Singaporean, Filipino or Vietnamese they are referring to? When global human resource heads roll out blockbuster pay, incentive or performance management programs, do they cast Asia as one region or a collage of geographical boundaries with five time zones, a land mass with people speaking 80 languages, trading 37 currencies and running 39 systems of governments?

This is a much-awaited book that explores HR management from an "Asian" Viewpoint. Written by experts who have in-depth experience in Asia, this book gives managers timely examples, war stories and case studies of organizations that have struggled to manage the diverse HR needs in the Asian environment. Some of the issues the book explores include:

  • How Chinese organizations are coping with the deluge of new compensation and performance management programs that have stormed their meeting rooms
  • How India may be a talent oasis but lags in developing programs to retain its highly mobile workforce
  • How Asian leadership models have changed with time as patriarchs make way for their Ivy-League trained children
  • How expatriate pay patterns have evolved
  • How HR is Asia needs to cope in globalized world while maintaining local needs.
  • Most modern HR books address global issues that are short of local context. What makes this book important is the historical and cultural context couples with Asian-focused experiences - making it a rare tome.
