Together with Professor Carla Curado (Lisbon School of Economics & Management), Professor Tenzer will be chairing the track International HRM and Cross-Cultural Issues at this year’s European International Business Academy (EIBA) Annual Conference. This track invites papers studying key issues in the international management of people in contemporary organizations. Those issues encompass the full range of international HRM activities from selection and recruitment to training, performance management, compensation and retention of individuals working in international roles, including (but not limited to) organization-induced expatriates, self-initiated expatriates, migrants, and individuals holding global leadership roles. We are also interested in papers exploring the challenges facing virtual teams and leaders in the globalized world of work.
We are particularly interested in papers exploring the importance of international HRM in a troubled world, the consequences of geopolitical tensions for managing human resources globally, the impact of HRM practices on employee well-being, and the effects of the Great Resignation across cultures. Submissions on diversity management (e.g. LGBTQIA+ supportive HRM practices across cultures), digital challenges, culture and language in IB are also highly welcome.
Papers submitted to this track may take individual, group or organizational perspectives. We welcome theoretical advances supported by empirical studies, both qualitative and quantitative; as well as pure theory papers and literature reviews analyzing the field’s development, evolution and impact.
The event takes place December 15th – 17th. The submission system opens April 1st.
