Human resource management performs a different function and operates very differently in Asia to its practice in the US and Europe. This volume demonstrates how human resource management is enacted in Asian countries, how it is changing in response to recent economic events, and how firms are linking indigenous and external human resource management learning. Examples are taken from firms in Japan, China, Korea and Thailand, and these domestic approaches are then considered in the context of joint ventures. As well as providing a detailed analysis of Asian human resource management, contributors with perspectives from both the East and the West show how multinational firms can incorporate Asian thinking and acting into a modern business strategy for successful human resource development in international ventures.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This book is a real enrichment for the reader to recognize the present development of Human Resource Management in Asia.' - Peter Faistauer, Chief Representative, Bank Austria Creditanstalt, Beijing

'A valuable book which provides a focused insight into the Asian business of today and the way forward.' - Jurgen Kracht, President, Fiducia Limited, Hong Kong

'With fundamental global shifts occurring in the world of work being swept along by dramatic changes in the use of information technology, this is a very timely benchmark of HRM developments in Asia. The Editors have brought together a snapshot of what is happening on the ground in HR Management in a powerhouse trade region as it emerges from recent crises. By contrasting approaches in Asian and Western companies, the authors provide the reader with real insight into cultural & diversity issues which have to be well managed to achieve best practice. It will serve as a great primer for managers and HR practitioners looking at how to ensure their operations in Asia are sustainable and successful. It throws up many useful challenges to conventional thinking about the relationship between employer and employee in the Asian context and effectively questions the unknowing adoption of HR practices developed for different cultures.' - Richard Rawling, Vice President, Asia Pacific Human Resources Forum, Melbourne

'The book has made a major step forward to close the gap between what we have known and what we still do not know very well in human resource management in the region. I have never seen a book written by scholars and business practitioners to cover Asia from such a practical viewpoint. I have never seen a book written by such a divergent team to cover such a variety of countries and topics. Moreover, the book is up-to-date and forward-looking. Therefore, I would highly recommend this book not only for scholars and students but also for those who are practising business in the region.' - Min Chen, Vice President Asia-Pacific, Teleflex Inc., Beijing; Professor, Thunderbird Graduate School of International Management, Glendale
