Description

This volume in the Routledge Global Human Resource Management Series is dedicated to analyzing the process of trust development between managers and subordinates in different countries of the main cultures of the world. Behaviors and trust are linked in a process that can reinforce or diminish the trust between the two parties. This book examines that process in an array of countries, contextualizing each setting through a brief historical, institutional, and cultural overview. Addressing the dominant HR practices and the main local leadership styles of each country, it draws upon an extensive country-by-country data set of leader-subordinate trust to analyze the universal and culturally-specific elements of this process. With its rigorous research, insightful analysis, and consistent presentation, this book will help readers to systematically compare the process across countries to draw conclusions and analyze HR implications.

This book is intended as a text for graduate courses in Cross Cultural Business, International Human Resource Management and Cross Cultural Organisational Psychology. In addition to a student market, the text will also be of interest to the reflective practitioner operating in different cultural settings who requires a contextual knowledge of key aspects of workplace relations, management style and host country situation.

Reviews

"This collection is a most interesting contribution to knowledge in the field of Manager-Subordinate Trust. It covers a wide range of topics and has a very systematic approach to the subject. It is is also inter-disciplinary and global in its scope. It deserves to be read widely by respectively students, academics and practitioners in management studies and related fields."

Malcolm Warner, Emeritus Fellow, Wolfson College and Judge Business School, University of Cambridge. His new edited book, Managing Across Diverse Cultures in East Asia, London and New York: Routledge, will appear in 2013.

"The focus on the process of trust development between managers and subordinates across different countries is imperative and timely. This edited volume takes a needed step forward to fill a serious gap in trust research, which is building organizational trust in the context of national culture."

Peter Ping Li, Professor of Chinese Business Studies & Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Trust Research
