What is International HRM ?
‘International HRM’ refers to international human resource management, which is a comprehensive department that undertakes all the functions and responsibilities of HR including recruitment, payroll and benefits, leaves and attendance, training, expenses, etc. on a global level. It is used by companies which have presence in multiple countries or continents.
The extra functionalities handled by an international HR management include managing and engaging employees throughout all the branches of the company around the world as well as establishing common policies by taking into account the local laws, customs and culture.
The employees from different countries would have different salary expectations and work timings. Similarly, the cultural differences would also dictate their expectations regarding the workplace facilities, extra benefits provided, etc. Understanding these differences and tailoring these facilities to engage the employees comes under the responsibility of international HR management.
