Dear Colleagues, The proposed book titled 'International Human Resource Management: Practices, Trends and Future Directions is commissioned by Nova Science Publishers, New York (www.novapublishers.com<http://www.novapublishers.com>). We would like to take this opportunity to cordially invite you to submit a chapter for consideration to be published in 2016. The aim of this book is to collect contributions that would address any practices, trends and future directions of human resource management (HRM) within the context of international business. The rapid process of globalisation has facilitated massive migration and movement of people across international borders, esp. via multinational companies through their trade and investment activities. Effective international business operation is not possible without implementing best practices of global HRM to motivate, attract and retain good people who help in the success process. Therefore, in this volume, we would anticipate the contributions to document, discuss and debate key international HRM issues, with focus on the following broader but not exhaustive areas of international business and HRM: * Staffing international operations * Recruiting and selecting international staff * International compensation * International training and development * International industrial relations * International performance management * Organisational behaviour and leadership issues related to international business * Corporate social responsibility and ethics related to international business * Any human factors related to international business Contribution for this edited book are intended to range from 4,000 to 10,000 words. We also welcome either a Commentary or Short Communication of 1,000-3,000 words. The book is planned to be published in September 2016. The deadline of final chapter submission is on 31 October 2015. Further inquiries and final submission of your contributions should be directed to Dr Connie Zheng, Book Editor, via email at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.
