Budhwar, Pawan, Tung, Rosalie L., Varma, Arup and Do, Hoa (2017). Developments in Human Resource Management in MNCs from BRICS nations:A review and future research agenda. Journal of International Management, 23 (2), pp. 111-123.

Abstract

In this introductory article, we analyze developments in the field of human resource management (HRM) in multinational corporations (MNCs) from the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa). We do this in terms of conceptual models, theoretical frameworks, empirical studies, research designs and MNC settings, with a view to setting the future research agenda on this emerging topic. In doing so, we identify research gaps as well as propose a number of research directions that can act as a useful guide for future research. The article therefore provides valuable information to both academics and practitioners and paves the way for future studies on the nature of HRM systems in MNCs from BRICS.
