ABSTRACT
This paper attempts to analyse and compare the human resource management (HRM) practices between Singapore and Thailand in terms of Budhwar and Sparrow's framework for examining cross-national HRM practices, particularly focusing on national factors and organizational strategies. It aims to identify the significant relationships between national factors, such as national culture, business sectors and business environment, and HRM practices. Additionally, the paper also explains how companies manage their personnel with the HRM practices developed and influenced by its national factors. To strengthen the argument, the paper then discusses HRM practices at organizational levels in both countries and pays specific attention to the core HRM functions of recruitment and selection, training and development and remuneration and reward in order to prove the significant roles national factors have played in each country's HRM practices and policies.
