In today s era of International business, International Human Resource Management (IHRM) is emerging as a crucial factor since organizations are run by people. What is interesting in this phenomenon is, not only that there are differences in people across the countries, but even within a country or regions within it. This complex socio-cultural and psychological fabric coupled with historical, geographic, economic and political factors, creates certain boundary conditions and makes IHRM a very complex process. The intention of this book is to portray the various factors that are connected with managing Human Resources in International Business. Since the two are inseparable, any organization aspiring to participate as a player in international business must develop the knowledge, skills and acumen to perceive the subtle nuances that govern the rules of game. IHRM as a discipline cuts across all other business operations in the international context and plays a vital role in the success or failure of a business venture since, businesses are essentially driven by people. In the light of the above, this book has sought to address some of the issues that relate to IHRM, which need to be logically understood by any keen observer of international business, today. The approach of this book has been to detail IHRM both, in terms of a function, as well as a process and the factors or key elements that are attached to them.To make this book reader-friendly, chapter highlights have been added at the beginning of each chapter to facilitate the reader to identify the broader areas that may be learnt from a particular chapter. Each chapter also contains detailed references and key terms. Conceptual questions, multiple choices, web-based exercises are some of the additional features of the book. Relevant diagrammatic representation, relevant case study and list of web references have been also added in this book.
