According to Becker (1996), “Research was conducted is just beginning to establish the plausible range of these effects, but early work indicates that reasonable changes in an HR system can affect a firm 's market value by $15,000-$45,000 per employee.” This is a mind-blowing fact since it was from 1996. Now 20 years later think about today’s organizational need for HRM since the globalization of companies when it comes to employee recruitment and selection that could span countries and not just states.

I also believe it is the foundation to tying all the other functions together in order for an organization to meet its goals. First, the planning aspect of hiring an employee can be the hardest but most critical. If HR personnel don’t have a solid plan to incorporate a global mindset for the purpose of recruiting and selection, then their efforts will not yield the highest quality personnel. The purpose of these activities is to

An effective transition of these policies depends on the organisational, cultural, social and relational factors (Bartlett & Ghoshal 1998; Evans, Pucik & Barsoux 2002; Poedenphant 2002). The transition of these policies

In an increasingly globalized world economy, the aggravation of global competition, the most important factor of national competitiveness are highly qualified and motivated employees (Storey 2007). Gubman (1996) pointed out the three challenges for the organizations that will never change: first, the major mission of human resources is to gain, develop, retain talent; second, adjust the workforces with the business; lastly, a superlative contributor to the business.

Managing HR in MNC is different from the way the HR is being managed in the country, According to Morgan (1986) there are three factors that differentiate between IHRM and domestic HR: First, the countries of operations such as the -country where a subsidiary may be located, the host-country where the subsidiaries are located, and other countries. Second, the different types of employee, in international environment the HR management have to deal with the host-country nationals (HCNs), expatriates or home-country nationals (PCNs) and third country nationals (TCNs), for example if L’Oreal hired an Indonesian employee in their Indonesian subsidiary the employee is a HCNs, and when manager from L’Oreal Headquarter in France came to work in Indonesian subsidiary the manager is a PCNs, and if L’Oreal employs manager neither from Indonesia nor France to work in their Indonesian subsidiary the manager is TCNs. Third, is the way HR practices (eg. staffing, compensation, training, and etc) are conducted. Although IHR practices seems to have the same activities as domestic HR, in IHR the manager will be dealing with different environment and diversity of employees from different cultural background.

In 21st century, the significance of traditional sources of competitive success (e.x. Technology, economies of scale) decreases because they are easy to imitate. In contrast, “the significance of human resources as the greatest asset of a business enterprise has increased since human resources constitute an organisation’s intangible, irreplaceable and, un-imitable resources” (Pfeffer, 1994). In addition, the business environment changes rapidly. Competition, globalisation, changes in the economic, market and technology are adding the pressure on the old human resources management system. In order to cope with changes, there is a need for the transformation of human resources management.
In this changing world, our global business theories and literature have implications toward the future. The future of this growth and success depends largely on the key component which is Human Resource Management. So, we as researchers hope to enlighten and inform you as employers the significance of an effective solution that both understands your employees and is beneficial to your company. That is why we offer our recommendations in the end of this article based on our findings.
International HRM is the interaction between the human resource functions, countries and types of employees1 - parent country nationals (PCNs), local or host country nationals (HCNs), and nationals from neither the parent nor host country but from a third country (TCNs).
Globalisation, as an integrated and independent world economy, has contributed to the rapid expansion of international trade and world’s economic growth (Paik & Vance, 2006; Mutsuddi, 2012).

The generation of cross-border labour market also had brought human resource management into an international context (Mutsuddi, 2012).
