The initial focus when comparing different corporate governance regimes around the world was on overall growth consequences. But as different types of national corporate governance regimes do better than others at specific times, and with great variance in national development within the main national corporate governance families, there is a growing interest in the specific effects on the firm itself. These analyses have interposed relative worker rights and social protection under the law as a variable that might dilute owner rights, diverting firms from a shareholder value maximisation agenda. However, this does not advance beyond simple hierarchical models suggesting that a single institutional feature underwriting property rights can explain everything of significance that goes on in the firm. As a result, there is growing body of applied research examining the consequences of dominant corporate governance regimes for a key stakeholder grouping with sunk human capital within the firm. Furthermore, arguments are made for a re-evaluation of the types of institutional arrangement and associated patterns of firm finance in relation to what might best explain particular sets of human resource management and employment practices including the direct effect on organisational performance and how this might affect overall economic growth. Corporate Governance and Human Resources Management presents the many different dimensions to national corporate governance regimes, encompassing the legal, the political, the economic, and the social behavior. While there is much debate within the literature as to which is the most important aspect of each, this monograph provides a basis to evaluate this burgeoning literature.
