ABSTRACT
The article offers information on international and global human resource management. Whereas international human resource management (HRM) has tended to operate in the same way as local HRM, global HRM exploits the new technologies available in order to manage all the company's staff around the world in the same way that it has traditionally managed staff in the home country. The article also discusses the results of research into specific human resource practices.
