The aim of this monograph is to provide a comprehensive overview on the International HRM in Central and Eastern Europe supported by qualitative research results. It is the first available publication on contemporary tendencies in IHRM in Central and Eastern Europe, published and based on the CRANET (the Cranfield Network on International HRM) cooperation. Therefore, there are contributions of experienced and relevant authors active in research and publishing in Central and Eastern Europe.

This book consists of three sections. The first focuses on the major impact of internationalisation of HRM in Central and Eastern Europe, identifying impacts of foreign investments, explaining emerging HRM models in the international business environment, introducing evolution of international HRM, including relevant factors of labor market changes and cultural diversity influences. The second section introduces a reflection of business aspects and internationalization in partial HRM functions. The third section contains qualitative research results performed in international companies and delivers an empirical background in the form of case studies. This predetermines the monograph’s valuable material for researchers in the field of HRM-related disciplines, as well as for teachers and students of graduate programs in business, economics and management.
