The Two logics behind human resource management

Author: Evans, Paul A. L. ; Lorange, PeterINSEAD Area: Organisational Behaviour In: Human resource management in international firms: change, globalization, innovation - Doz, Yves L.;Laurent, André;Evans, Paul - 1990 - INSEAD Book Language: EnglishDescription: p. 144-161.Type of document: INSEAD ChapterNote: Please ask the Library for this chapter.Abstract: Multinational corporations (MNCs) often operate in many different product-market segments. The employees in their far flung geographic operations represent very different social cultures. The policies and practices for human resource management that are effective in managing one product-market may not be the most appropriate for another; those that work well in one cultural setting will not necessarily function in another. How can a firm operating in different product-markets and diverse socio-cultural environments effectively establish human resource policies? What principles should guide corporate management of the complex MNC in the management of its human resources? In assessing the orientation of human resource management in the corporation, we believe that it is necessary to examine the implications of these two logics both separately and together. These are the issues discussed in this chapter.
