The global context and people at work: Special issue introduction

Publikation: Beiträge in ZeitschriftenZeitschriftenaufsätzeForschung


Although considerable research has been conducted on a variety of cross-cultural management topics, we still know very little about how organizations can effectively manage people involved in global work or how cross-cultural differences impact individuals and groups at work. To address this gap, we edited a special issue of Personnel Psychology that presents scholarly research contributing to understanding how global experiences and contexts impact people at work. We identified 3 research themes: cross-cultural comparisons, the different types of global workers, and theoretical perspectives that underlie the accepted articles' contributions to this special issue. We conclude with specific theoretical and methodological recommendations for research on human resource management and organizational behavior topics incorporating the global context.
