Many global companies want to establish a uniform culture among talented employees with common company values at all levels of the organization at all operations throughout the world. As companies expand their global operations, and as competition within and across jurisdictions increases, companies want to upgrade their workforce and hire the "very best" and "most talented" employees in each country where they have operations. Successful recruiting, interviewing and screening of candidates - from the lowest to the highest level within the organization - will reduce turnover and other costs in the long run and increase profitability. As companies expand their global operations, in-house and outside counsel and H.R. representatives are more regularly being asked to provide advice on the following issues: * What, if any, policies and procedures can a company adopt on a global basis to hire the best employees? * What, if any, information can be requested of a candidate on an employment application? * What, if any, questions can be asked of a candidate in an interview? * What, if any, information needs to be shared with the candidate about the company or about the job? * What, if any, pre-employment medical tests or exams or other tests can be required of a candidate? This handbook will provide both legal and practical answers to these questions and discuss the delicate balance between maintaining the privacy rights of employees with the business interests of employers

The current theory of corporate social responsibility (CSR) is developing along three interwoven lines - oral, social, and environmental. Although everybody recognizes that although CSR is of growing concern in a globalized economy, it being at the top of the board of director's agenda and also good for business, there is no sign of consensus on its rules, structures, or procedures. Now, this collection of essays by leading jurists, businesspeople, and academics takes a giant step toward a more cohesive and durable set of principles that can contribute to a cleaner environment and a better society while respecting and protecting the interests of all stakeholders.

This report provides survey and detailed case study evidence of the experiences of organisations in implementing e-recruitment. It also illustrates perceived benefits, and evidence of barriers to implementation. A key message for recruiters is to acknowledge that the adoption of e-recruitment is about more than technology. Most significantly, e-recruitment is to do with cultural and behavioural change, both within HR and amongst line managers. For e-recruitment to deliver, it is about developing the capability of HR to facilitate the system, and to view the staffing process as an end-to-end process, similar to that of a supply chain.

Global talent has never been more mobile or sought after. A complex phenomenon that takes many forms, the movement of people with skills includes migrants crossing borders for temporary stays abroad as well as settlement, students moving for degrees and temporary and permanent stays, and even tourists and refugees who decide to stay abroad and use their skills. Countries attracting global talent increase their stock of human and technological skills, and in the past decade many have welcomed foreign professionals and students to redress domestic skill shortages and to quicken economic growth. This book includes general and theoretical papers on skilled migration and also papers on the country experiences of Australia, India, Japan, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It addresses the socio-economic and cultural challenges created by increased mobility in a world where globalizing and localizing forces are at work simultaneously
