What is Global Human Resource Management ?
‘Global Human Resource Management’ refers to global HR management, which emcompasses all the functions and responsibilities of HR including recruitment, payroll, benefits, leave, attendance, training, expenses, health, etc. on an international level. It is used by companies which have presence in multiple countries and continents.
The extra functions undertaken by a global human resource management include managing and engaging employees throughout all the branches of the company all around the world as well as establishing common policies by taking into account the laws of the land, the local customs and the culture.
The employees from different locations would have different salary expectations and different work timings. Similarly, the cultural differences would also dictate their expectations regarding the workplace facilities, extra benefits provided, communication, etc. Understanding these differences and tailoring these facilities to satisfy the employees comes under the responsibility of global human resource management.
