About this title


The strategic value of human resource management (HRM) in successful, sustainable competitive advantage is fully acknowledged and yet, until now there has been little in the way of descriptive analytic profiles of countries and markets outside of the US and Europe. Together with Volume 1 this Handbook forms a complete codification of HRM policies and practices of all 21 APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) member economies. This unique volume contains 11 profiles of Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, Russia, Singapore and Vietnam. The Handbook of Human Resource Management Policies and Practices in Asia-Pacific Economies, Volume 2 will be essential reading for lecturers, researchers, academics and managers concerned with human resource management, international business, management, and cross-cultural studies. The Handbook will also be of great interest to those involved in industrial and employment relations.


‘There is considerable rigour behind the work and the contexts are well positioned. The books have excellent HR data for not only businesses, but employees considering a transfer to an international location. In addition to the primary authors cadres of industry advisors were assembled of considerable status and representing mainstream organisations and unions. The countries covered total twenty one and, in addition, there is a summary chapter in volume two on issues, trends and implications. Obviously there are other reference points available on single countries and indeed dual country comparisons, but this work is timely, highly relevant and extremely valuable. It is recommended most highly.’ Author: Geoffrey N. De Lacy, Australian Human Resource Institute Journal

‘A very welcome and valuable addition to the literature, this two-volume handbook covers current HRM policies and practices in all 21 APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) member economies. For the first time, we have single-source access to a codified set of macro-level HRM profiles for APEC membership economies . . . this project helps fill the need for systematic and accurate HRM data in a very large geographic area, including four continents divided by the Pacific Ocean . . . this is an impressive compilation and will benefit government and business organizations when formulating strategy for employment relations. It will also assist those in the academic sector with the research and teaching of cross-cultural management issues. It should be a welcome addition to most academic and special libraries with interests in the Asia and the Pacific.’ Author: David A. Flynn, Business Information Alert
