Constructing a Chinese International Human Resource Management System in Regional Australia: The Case of CHALCO

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

This project will research and assist the construction of an International Human Resource Management system for the Aluminium Corporation of China (CHALCO). This firm's $3 billion investment in Queensland constitutes a new stage in China's entry into the international business world. CHALCO intends to utilise its investment as an opportunity to develop an IHRM system that can underpin its global operations. The CIs will be able to examine a new era in China's outward FDI from the development stage and by so doing add to empirical and theoretical knowledge of the IHRM systems of MNCs that originate in developing countries.
