Towards a ‘European’ Model of Human Resource Management

Journal of International Business Studies, 1995, vol. 26, issue 1, 1-21

Abstract: The concept of human resources management (HRM) has been much debated in the literature. The concept developed initially from work in the U.S.A. in the 1960s and 1970s and since then has been adopted increasingly around the world. This paper argues that in Europe there is only limited acceptance of the organizational autonomy upon which the concept in based, and that, therefore, different approaches to the notion of human resource management are required. External constraints are analysed and a new model of the concept that would encompass EuroHRM is proposed.© 1995 JIBS. Journal of International Business Studies (1995) 26, 1–21
