Front Cover
Greenwood Publishing Group, 1995 - Business & Economics - 325 pages
3 Reviews

Selmer and his contributors tackle one of the most challenging topics in international business today: how to manage human resources on a global scale. Drawing upon academic research and practical experience, they cover expatriation and impatriation as a way to internationalize managers; the problems of change, adaptation, adjustment that affect international executives; and the policies that would ensure equitable treatment of third country nationals. A unique, wide-ranging volume without esoteric jargon and abstruse statistical analyses, Expatriate Management offers not only an inventory of challenging new ideas that can be put to practical use today, but also a set of workable policy recommendations for the future.
