Abstract: The purpose of the study is to identify the specific characteristics of HRM practices aimed at ambidextrous learning in innovation-active companies of the BRIC countries. The study for the first time compares the ambidextrous learning practices and their trends for convergence in BRICs. The methodology involves descriptive analysis of HRM practices in 200 innovation active companies of BRICs. Results of the study indicate that there are considerable convergence trends within innovation-active companies of BRIC. All countries in general are oriented on knowledge exploitation with their use of specific HRM practices. There are however significant differences within BRIC countries with regard to knowledge exploration.
