About this event

IHRM research: It's time to review, reset, and re-imagine!

About the Presentation

Drawing from their recent reviews of 60 years of research in international and comparative HRM, published inHuman Resource Management (2021) and the Asia Pacific Journal of Human Resources (2021), Helen De Cieri and Karin Sanders will discuss and raise questions such as: How do we define the field of International and Comparative HRM? What are the three identified research streams within the field? What has been studied within the field of international and comparative HRM, with regard to theoretical frameworks, concepts investigated, and research methods used? Which perspectives have been privileged and which have been ignored, with regard to authors and participants in research? Are there features that are specific to research on international and comparative HRM in the Asia Pacific context? If we view the COVID-19 pandemic as a catalyst for a 'great re-set', how should we re-imagine the field of IHRM? The speakers will discuss such questions and encourage researchers and practitioners to examine challenges and opportunities in IHRM.
