Take a breath. This vignette describes the painful process of forgetting to take a breath before sending an email to colleagues but hitting the ‘reply all’ button. Hence, the conference organiser now knows my views. Take a breath. Don’t reply immediately.

This chapter compares and contrasts human resource management (HRM) models in Australia and New Zealand, discussing how despite both being liberal market economies, the differences between the countries in size (geographically and economically) result in variance in HRM practice. In particular, the review emphasises the importance of small business and informal characteristics of HRM in New Zealand, compared to the typically larger Australian organisations.
