Summary

As rival economies mature, attention shifts to new frontiers - such as Africa. Yet academic debate often neglects the complexities of this diverse continent, and the challenges faced by both multinational companies and domestic companies; particularly those in the Human Resource (HR) field. This is a refreshing new book that boldly tackles the HR challenges in countries spanning the African continent, examining the impact of contextual factors on the development of HR practices. Taking a regional approach to the subject, it featuring chapters on 11 different countries, including South Africa, Mauritius, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Tunisia and Libya, and has been written and edited by those with expert knowledge of the continent. It offers a fresh perspective on a growing subject area, showing how to develop techniques and practices that reflect the real needs of workers in Africa, and providing a balanced analysis of the area. Valuable not only to students and researchers in international management, human resources, organization theory and cross-cultural management, this topical and much-needed study is also critical reading for managers of multinational companies and domestic managers in Africa.
