In the current economic climate, making the most of the resources that one has available to them is considered key. In the past, the employees of a company have not always been considered as resources but it is clear that times are changing. The topic of Human Resource Management is one that has been discussed in great detail over the years but it is still felt that it is lacking the attention it deserves. Traditional business functions such as Sales or Finance have dominated headlines in the past but HRM is now coming to the fore. Certain areas of HRM have developed more than others over the years, in particular the areas of International HRM and Expatriation. The changes taking place regarding expatriate management are indicative of the changes taking place across HRM as a whole.

This research paper provides further information surrounding these topics by drawing from research into existing academic theories as well as providing an insight into a multinational organisation. It is hoped that by reading this one will gain a better understanding of the problems that have faced International HRM in the past as well as how they are being overcome. Year on year organisations are realising the almost limitless potential of HRM and as such it remains a particularly exciting field in which to operate.
