About the Book

This book draws on recent theoretical contributions in the area of global talent management and presents an up to date and critical review of the key issues which MNEs face. Beyond exploring some key overarching issues in global talent management the book discuses the key emerging issue around global talent management in key economies such as China, India, the Middle East and Eastern Europe.

In contrast to many of the currently available texts in the area of global talent management which are descriptive and lacking theoretical rigor, this text emphasizes the critical understanding of global talent management in an organizational context. Drawing on contributions from the leading figures in the field, it will aid students, practitioners and researchers alike in gaining a well grounded and critical overview of the key issues surrounding global talent management from a theoretical and practical perspective.

About the Series

Global HRM

Edited and authored by the best and most well known researchers in the field of human resource management (HRM), this series of books offers students accessible, coordinated and comprehensive textbooks on global HRM. To be used individually or together, these books cover the main bases of the area, including titles on global alliances, corporations, leadership, legal systems, staffing and compensation systems.

The series is organized into three strands: the first reflects general issues of global HRM; the second more specific HR functions in a global context; and the third, comparative human resource management.

Taking an expert look at an increasingly important area of global business, this is a groundbreaking new series that answers a real need for serious textbooks on global HRM.
