Managing global human resources is an intricate task as multiculturalism and geographic dispersion of labour can pose unconventional challenges to the companies. Each global company may have to deal with employees belonging to three kinds of countries. These countries are: (i) the host country, where the company is located, (ii) the parent or home country, where...... The management of the international HRM function in a multinational firm is not an easy task. A manager charged with such a task must meet both local and corporate standards for recruitment, selection, training, performance appraisal, and compensation.

First, from a cognitive perspective, culturally diverse individuals learn different sets.......
Cultural differences can be found in a multitude of HRM practices, such as recruiting and selection, reward allocation policies and compensation programs, and social benefits programs. For instance, businesses in countries which culture is characterized by high uncertainty avoidance are more inclined to offer seniority-based compensation than organizations from low uncertainty avoidance cultures. Having said that, the fact that societies might, in general, exhibit a culturally-based preference for a specific group of policies or practices shouldn't be interpreted as requiring that firms adopt these practices to become effective.
