Akadémiai Kiadó, 2003 - Personnel management - 208 pages
The development and effective utilization of human resources has become a key feature in the creation of firms' and nation-states' competitive advantage. The transfer and diffusion of new employment and work practices across borders is also a key feature of the increasingly internationalized world economy. The emerging new Europe grapples with these issues. With Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic at the forefront of change in the region, Central and Eastern Europe has become a test-bed of these developments and the debates surrounding them. Integrating new and original empirical material with cutting-edge conceptualization, this book maps and assesses change in employment and work throughout the region. The contributors to the book are leading researchers in the field. They provide a major contribution to the examination of the nature and extent of the transfer, development and management of human resources in Central and Eastern Europe.
