About the Authors
  • International Human Resource Management offers a contemporary and multilayered introduction to international and comparative human resource management for university study. It critically analyses the core issues and emerging trends in the field, with a consistent emphasis on real-world scenarios and concerns. At the macro level, the book examines how IHRM fits within and adapts to the ever-changing environment of international relations and global development. At the firm level, it elucidates the strategic goals served by IHRM, and the processes used to achieve them. At the individual level, the analysis extends beyond the traditional focus on expatriates to encompass the various IHRM actors and their motivations. Each chapter features a case study, a media article, tutorial activities, discussion questions and links to further reading. The book concludes with three extended case studies, each based on a specific region, to help students consolidate their understanding.

    Dimitria Groutsis, University of Sydney
    Dimitria Groutsis is a Senior Lecturer in Work and Organisational Studies, University of Sydney. Dimitria has conducted research on labour mobility and the related policy implications of this mobility in Australia and Europe. Her main focus has been on skilled migration with an emphasis on the medical profession. She is currently a member of an international team examining the mobility of health care professionals in Australia, Canada, the US and the UK. In 2006 she was awarded a visiting fellowship at the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy where she conducted research on skilled migration into Greece. During this time she also continued her work with the International Organisation of Migration (IOM) on preserving a large historical archive depicting the history of post-war Greek emigration. Presently, her research draws on an historical perspective of migration to understand labour settlement needs and management responses to diversity.

    William Harvey, University of Exeter
    Dr William Harvey is a Senior Lecturer in Organisation Studies at the University of Exeter. Will Harvey's research focuses on three particular areas. First, on how reputation is built and sustained within professional service firms. In particular, he is analysing how stakeholders judge quality and reputation within management consultancy firms as well as whether such firms have single or multiple reputations across different practice areas in various country contexts. Second, his work analyses the mobility, economic impact and social networks of highly skilled migrants. Specifically, he is focusing on British and Indian professionals working in a range of economic sectors around Boston and Vancouver. Finally, his research examines some of the methodological and practical challenges with interviewing elite business professionals. Will has published in a range of journals across the social sciences including Work and Occupations, Population, Space and Place, Qualitative Research, Global Networks, Asian Population Studies and Geoforum. He is an Associate Fellow in the Centre for Corporate Reputation at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.
