What is Global Human Resource Management?

Global Human Resource Management Defined

Global human resource management, sometimes referred to as global HRM, is an umbrella term that includes all aspects of an organization’s HR, payroll, and talent management processes operating on a global scale.

As technological innovations make it easier for organizations to conduct business across the world, global expansion has become an increasing reality—if not a necessity. Likewise, it’s essential for these multinational organizations to have the right HRM software in place that’s capable of serving employees working around the globe.
