About the eBook

'The Editors have produced a tour de force on Middle Eastern human resource management (HRM). They brought together a vast array of regional and global experts to capture all that is worth knowing. The book has an innovative contextual-country-thematic structure. It sets the scene by laying out the cultural and societal issues that shape HRM in the Middle East. There is detailed and comparative coverage of eight of the major economies, followed by a superb set of discussions of thematic issues that range from localisation to expatriation, from public sector management to privatisation, and from employee relations to talent management.'
- Paul Sparrow, Lancaster University Management School, UK

The Handbook of Human Resource Management in the Middle-East provides evidence-based information regarding the dynamics of HRM in this important region. The book is organized into three parts: contextual and functional issues such as societal and cultural perspectives, performance management and talent management; country specific HRM covering the GCC, Levant and North African nations; and emerging themes such as HR issues related to domestic workers, labour localisation, expatriate management, corporate social responsibility, wasta, foreign and public sector firms.

This systematic analysis highlights the main forces determining HRM systems in the region. Its 23 chapters move from a general overview of HRM in the Middle-East to a research-based presentation and discussion on the current status, role and strategic importance of the HR function in a wide-range of settings, before highlighting emerging themes in HRM models and discussing future challenges for research, policy and practice.

The Handbook of Human Resource Management is invaluable reading for academics and students alike, especially those interested in international and comparative human resource management. Practitioners with interest in the Middle East will appreciate its up-to-date analysis and contextualisation of HRM issues.
