This chapter analyses human capital investment in the context of international human resource development (IHRD) through a multi-level perspective. Specifically the inter-connections between the macro (national and regional) and micro (organisational) levels and IHRD are examined. The chapter provides an overview of national measures of levels and quality of human capital investment. Based on discussion in this chapter, recommendations for the integration of macro and micro-levels of analysis for IHRD and performance research are considered. Finally, conclusions are drawn based on recommendations for future research.

This chapter provides an overview of the literature on improving survey response, focussing upon ways of tailoring the survey design to leverage potential respondents’ decision to participate, and uses a case study to examine an application of leverage-saliency theory. Techniques likely to be effective in maximising telephone survey participation in HRD research are detailed.
