The context of international resourcing
As people are an organisation’s best asset and also likely to be the most expensive resource within an organisation, ensuring the right number of suitable staff is a key priority for business success. In attracting and selecting the broadest pool of talent, resourcing and selection are therefore key HRM processes within any organisation with particular challenges emerging for those organisations who operate internationally.
Resourcing is concerned with HR planning and then mechanisms around recruitment and selection. In all organisations, whether or not they are operating on an international basis, there is the need to consider the planning of resources. When operating internationally, this is especially important because of the potential costs involved.
