Advances in Human Resource Management in Asia
Human resource management performs a different function and operates very differently in Asia to its practice in the US and Europe. This volume demonstrates how human resource management is enacted in Asian countries, how it is changing in response to recent economic events, and how firms are linking indigenous and external human resource management learning. Examples are taken from firms in Japan, China, Korea and Thailand, and these domestic approaches are then considered in the context of joint ventures. As well as providing a detailed analysis of Asian human resource management, contributors with perspectives from both the East and the West show how multinational firms can incorporate Asian thinking and acting into a modern business strategy for successful human resource development in international ventures.
