This book offers an in-depth and recent account of the research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies and how it is impacting and shaping the field of international human resource management (IHRM).
Grounded in contemporary developments in the field of technological change and the Future of Work and the fourth industrial revolution (4IR), the book lays down a solid foundation by offering a comprehensive review of the field of AI and IHRM. It includes empirical research, including case studies of global MNEs and conceptual chapters focusing on the impact of AI on IHRM practices and therefore business-level outcomes of productivity, efficiency, and effectiveness through the adoption of AI-assisted HR applications. The chapters in this volume evaluate individual IHRM practices and study how they impact employee-level outcomes of job satisfaction, personalization, employee commitment and so on. Finally, the book concludes by identifying current gaps in the literature and offers directions for future research for scholars to develop and advance future research agendas in the field.
This volume will be of great use to researchers, academics and students in the fields of business and management, especially those with a particular interest in new age technologies of operating business. The chapters in this book, except for Conclusion, were originally published as a special issue of The International Journal of Human Resource Management.
