|OBJECTIVE AND CALL FOR PAPERS
The field of HRM has now evolved world-wide and perhaps matured in the western developed nations. Considering the rapid pace of globalisation, developments in emerging markets, expansion of the European Union and the growing uncertainties in the world, it is now time to examine the emerging HRM issues in the present dynamic business context.
Issues such as what aspects of HRM and in what context contribute towards firms' performance; relevance of established models of HRM in different contexts; HRM systems in new sectors such as knowledge based; outsourcing of HR; and ethical issues and HRM.
Submissions are invited of conceptual, theoretical and empirical nature adopting different methodologies from diverse sectors and possible countries which can help to highlight the context-specific nature of HRM systems in the present era.
Proposals for presentations are invited for the 21st SHRM WORKSHOP which present research or theory on any of the following themes related to HRM:
* Strategic HRM - increasing strategic nature of HRM, its impact on organizational achievements, role, status and nature of HRM function and the way forward
* HRM and Firms' Performance - empirical evidence to further cement such developments, especially in the non UK/US context; methodological issues; and the way forward.
* International HRM - expansion of emerging school of thought from the focus on MNCs to cross-cultural and comparative HRM. Increased emphasis on examining HRM systems of emerging markets; and issues related to transfer of HRM across national boundaries.
* HRM and Other Emerging Issues - HR issues related to outsourcing; HRM,innovation and learning organizations; ethical issues and HRM.
