International Human Resource Management - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives

Human resource management involves managing workers to achieve an organization's goals. Unlike years in the past, it's now necessary to think globally and consider people world-wide. In this chapter, the instructor will explain several different approaches to global staffing. You can learn about the influences of expatriates, or people who have moved away from their countries of origin, on staffing. You can also find out about parent-, host- and third-country nationals and how human resource managers might communicate with them. Upon completion of this chapter, you should be able to:

  • Compare global approaches to staffing
  • Explain the effects of expatriate staffing
