Abstract

Indicates that international human resource management (IHRM) is becoming increasingly important in a growing number of Irish international companies, which, while large in national terms, are medium-sized when compared withother European and North American multinational firms. The findings of the research suggest that the development of comprehensive IHRM policies and practices may enable smaller firms to be more proactive in their approach to internationalisation and to have a greater choice over the types of markets and countries they enter.
