HRM pathway

The business context for managing human resources has changed significantly in recent years due to economic, political, social and technological forces. Competition in global business has led to significant interest and research into which HRM policies and practices lead to enhanced organisational performance. Another area of strategic focus for HRM, within multinational companies in particular, is the ease and speed at which knowledge can be developed and disseminated.
