Book description

Human Resource Management (HRM) is fundamentally shaped by institutional and cultural factors, such as the different political environments and social philosophies of particular countries and regions. By examining the various organizational aspects of business life and systems of people management in Asia, the study of HRM across the continent can, therefore, give us a greater understanding of Asian societies, as well as the contemporary world of work more generally.

This handbook provides an up-to-date and intellectually engaging overview of HRM in the Asian context. Distinctive in its comprehensive coverage of traditional as well as emerging topics of HRM, it analyzes important themes, such as the regulatory framework for work and employment, religiosity, family business, and gender. Using a comparative approach, it also effectively highlights the unique features of each country?s attitudes towards HRM. Covering a range of themes and case studies, sections include:

? Institutional and cultural contexts,

? Labour regulation and industrial relations,

? Thematic and functional HRM,

? HRM in selected Asian countries, such as China, Japan, Vietnam, India, and Singapore.

Written in a highly accessible style, this book will be useful to students and scholars of Human Resource Management, Asian Business,  Economics, and Sociology.
