Comparative human resource management is concerned with comparing the different approaches to human resource management (HRM) found in different geographical enti- ties – usually, though not always, countries. (International HRM deals with how multina- tional enterprises manage such differences.) There are, of course, other comparisons – we know that HRM varies with the size of the organisation and with the sector that it operates in. But country is the most powerful explanation of the differences between organ- isations in the way they manage their human resources.
