Abstract

The authors compare the employment issues in relation to managers in Britain and Australia, within a wider international context. Using the convergence divergence debates about the internationalization of management as a point of departure, the article analyses managers’education and development, employment trends, unemployment, recruitment and selection processes, human resource planning, job mobility, career success routes, pay and fringe benefits, and managerial unionization, which is more widespread in these countries than in the USA.The authors note both convergence and divergence between patterns of managerial employment in Britain and Australia compared with Japan, the USA and other countries, but draw attention to the need for more comparative research.
