The main objective of the present work is to offer literature on the subject based primarily on the Indian context and to enable students to have an easy and convenient grasp of the subject. Every effort has been made to comprehensively cover all the relevant aspects of the subject incorporating up-to-date materials and developments in the field. While the book is based primarily on Indian context, adequate attention has been given to cover, at appropriate places, those theories, strategies, approaches, and practices that have general applicability and also the experiences of the countries of the West and the far-east, particularly, USA, UK, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan, which have acquired universal recognition.

Since the publication of the first edition of the book in 2016, there have been some notable developments having potent impact on HRM. Of these, a particular mention may be made of changes in labour laws and regulations, enlargement of multinationals and expansion of international business, the emergence of new challenges in international HRM, somewhat rapid improvements in information and communication technology, accelerated movement of skilled employees and managers from one country to another, and occurrence of certain unforeseen incidences such as spread of Corona pandemic and political upheavals in a few countries. All these developments have been kept in mind in the finalization of this second edition of the book.
