    Developing IHRM insight using effective cross-national research

    About the Presentation

    There is a long tradition in IHRM research of comparing countries, with national context now recognised as important in developing our understanding of undertaking HRM across different cultural and institutional settings. Accompanying the growth in international comparative HRM research is an increasing awareness of the many challenges that arise when simultaneously collecting comparable data across multiple countries. The methodological decisions relating to comparative research are well documented, but often more salient are the practical and collaborative challenges relating to projects aiming to provide valuable insights across countries. In this webinar Professor Emma Parry will draw on her considerable experience in designing and undertaking comparative research projects and in managing international research networks such as Cranet and 5C. Emma, together with a panel of eminent scholars from IHRM, international management, and international careers will aim to address these challenges. She will emphasise the importance of taking a pragmatic approach to designing comparative research and discuss the lessons learned in areas such as data collection & sampling, selecting suitable partners, and managing an international network.
