Dave Ulrich and his colleagues at RBL and at the University of Michigan have captured, in their usual prescient manner, the HR challenges and opportunities companies face as they seek to expand their businesses across the developed, developing, and emerging marketplace spectrum. This is a ‘must read’ for any leader who is responsible for managing global businesses. The financial crisis of 2008 underscored the fact that the world is now, for better or
Worse, tightly connected and interrelated. Global HR Competencies sheds light on the importance of HR practices that are adaptable and designed to create value based on keen insights at the local level. For the HR practitioner, this book will illuminate and expand the notion of geographic diversity and the essentials of getting and staying in touch with local norms and trends.
