HRM, INSTITUTIONS, AND PERFORMANCE IN EMERGING MARKETS
This research centres on the relationship between Human Resource Management, institutional setting, and organisational performance in emerging markets, where institutional arrangements remain fragile and fluid. It aims to examine whether specific combinations of HR practices coalesce together in emerging economies in order to enhance organisational effectiveness, and draw out the broader theoretical and applied implications of this in terms of understanding the nature of institutional coverage and complementarity in developing-world settings. Examples of countries in this study are the UAE, KSA, Jordan, India, Pakistan, China, Brunei, among others.
