Chapter 25: HRM in the transition states of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union

Michael J. Morley, Dana Minbaeva and Snejina Michailova


Many of the countries of Central & Eastern Europe (CEE) and the Former Soviet Union (FSU) have pursued aggressive development trajectories since the early 1990s with varying economic, political, and human resource management (HRM) outcomes. Arising from a review of nomothetic and idiographic studies on HRM in these countries, the authors landscape some key idiosyncratic features at play in the region and chart core aspects of the development of HRM. They question the extent to which ‘Western’ theories and ‘best practices’ can be applied to the territory, or whether there is evidence of a unique or hybrid approach to HRM emerging. They conclude that knowledge of HRM in the region remains exploratory at best, and encourage future empirical research.
