AutoUni - Schriftenreihe, Bd. 29
The present publication includes contributions by four authors from the BRIC countries, who deal with the question of peculiarities of the HR personnel systems based on the research literature in these countries which is not easily available for Western readers. Which traditional models exist for the formation of personnel systems, for human resource management, what are the models, organizational patterns and management concepts, which can be followed by companies, what questions are still contested, and what role are the multi-national companies playing? The contributions show a broad variety of approaches regarding personnel management, reflecting the background of different conditions for human resources, legal regulations and cultural influences. Altogether, the representations of the country-specific characteristics enable us to envision new departures which can be observed in the new industrial centers of the world economy in the area of labor and personnel management.
