HRM values of Chinese managers working in multi-national enterprises

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

This presentation highlights a study that explores the nature of HRM values of local Chinese managers working in multi- national enterprises (MNEs) in China using repertory grid interviews with thirty-six local Chinese managers. The interviewees reflected a high level of assimilation and internalisation of many Western HRM values. However, interviewees also retained many traditional values as well. A notable characteristic of the results is the coexistence of paradoxical values from Western HRM and Chinese people management, emphasising both collectivist and individualistic values. This presentation will outline the use of repertory grid within HRM research as well as identify the values of Chinese managers.
