This collection of articles and cases helps readers develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that human resource and other managers need for success when working in culturally diverse environments. Three key questions are addressed:

What are the trends and current issues in global diversity that affect management and human resource management?
What are the solutions?
What is needed to implement these solutions?

Articles from a range of different cultures have been specially chosen for their readability and for their practical application. Cases at the end of each section provide real life examples of successes and problems from a variety of countries, highlighting national differences and challenging students to provide solutions to real life issues.
With a detailed introduction setting the scene for the readings and cases, International HRM: Managing Diversity in the Workplace is ideal for students on MBA and executive courses in international human resource management and cultural diversity.
