Description - Globalization, Employment and the Workplace by Yaw A. Debrah
The globalization of business is a relatively new process. Although its influence on work, employment, the labour process and the management process has become increasingly significant, little is known about these developments. In order to redress this imbalance, this book provides evidence of the nature and degree of significance that globalization holds for nation states, cultures, trade unions, employees and business management. Underlying the various contributions is a focus upon the varied and complex nature of internationalism in the business world. The work is wide-ranging, drawing on research from Australia, China, Europe, Latin America, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Individual chapters cover diverse issues, including: * Responses made by trade unions and their members to the pressures of globalization * The experiences and reactions of national states and geographical regions to the changes brought about in the areas of business performance and employment * The flows of cultural influences through transnational business developments * Discussion of the ways in which management often fail to grasp the new opportunities and benefits associated with globalization Academics and professionals working in international business, human resource management, employment relations and associated areas will all find this work a valuable and enlightening resource.
