Do Organizations’ Human Resource Management Practices Converge? An Empirical Analysis

18 Apr 2018 -12:00 - 13:00

The debate on convergence versus divergence or stasis of human resource management (HRM) practices over time is still ongoing. We look at configurations of organizations’ personnel selection practices and analyze empirically the role of geographical, cultural, and institutional distance between countries for the emergence of similarity in these practices. Furthermore, we examine whether convergence has occurred between 1995 and 2014. Based on the Cranet data that comprise 25,499 organizations from 41 countries and statistical tests using kernel density estimates (KDE), we find a wavelike pattern over time, moving from convergence via stasis to divergence. In addition, personnel selection configurations relate to cultural and institutional differences in the sense that smaller distances lead to higher similarity, but not to geographical distance. Our study adds to the debate on HRM convergence and offers a new method of analysis for other areas of HRM research where configurations instead of single HRM practices play a role.
