Chapter 5: Methodological challenges for quantitative research in comparative HRM
This chapter discusses methodological challenges in doing empirical quantitative research on HRM and effectiveness in the field of comparative human resource management (HRM). In particular, attention is paid to the challenges of adopting an appropriate level of analysis and of inferring causality in studying the HRM_effectiveness link. The authors provide examples of how to handle methodological problems when working with quantitative data, including advice on fixed-effects models and conducting quasi-experiments in comparative HRM studies.
