Human Resources in the International Organization’s Context

Lavdrim Sahitaj, Olta Allmuça, Alba Allmuça Ramallari


Why do firms engage in international business? This happens for three main reasons: (i) To expand their sales; (ii) To identify new resources; and (iii) To diversify the sale and supply resources. Undoubtedly we are becoming further more convinced on the key role the human resources play in any organization, especially in the international organization. If human resources require a considerable attention in the firms operating within the country, it is rather easy to imagine the degree of indispensable attention they need in the firms operating in a global context. In this context, the company leaders are faced with the need to perform their work activity through the efforts of local employees, foreign employees, agents and suppliers. By creating strategic alliances or international joint ventures, the boundaries and organizational relationships (sub-contracted, part-time employments) are prone to change, thus these circumstanced call to attention the regulation of the workforce, aiming at achievement of the objectives in the global context. In order to obtain some valuable conclusions concerning the human resource management, waging research and engaging in the use of particular resources, becomes a necessary process to be undertaken. Moreover, as this topic has been a vital issue, it has gained the attention of numerous researchers who have made hypotheses or build models on human resources in the international organizations context. What has particularly attracted my attention is the individual in itself, the manager working in an international organization, the one transferred to work in a branch of an organization for a relatively long period. I was eager to know his perspective on the experiences, how has his/her way of thinking changed, his/ her lifestyle; would he/she be willing to go back to his workplace etc.? Another interesting issue is being able to comprehend the organization’s perspective, the procedures applied to selects the appropriate employees performing a specific job, how does the organization implements the human resource planning, which is the recruitment strategy effectuated, who are the selected employees to be transferred, what is the applied model in making the due selection.
