Women in Human Resource Management

Project Details


Traditional perspectives on human resource management suggest a gender specific role differentiation between male and female HR professionals. Purpose of this research project is to analyze how such gender differences influence the roles and status of human resource department in a cross-national comparison. Conceptually, the project draws on institutional theory in the tradition of "world polity" by John W. Meyer, arguing that there is a homogenization of gender-related differences as a consequence of worldwide cultural modernization processes. The empirical analysis uses data from the Cranet survey on human resource management.
