HRM in Israel: New challenges

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper considers the development of HRM strategies and practices in Israel. It provides a comprehensive analysis of how Israeli firms deal with people-related issues and situations in a demanding and unique environment. Based on both an historical perspective and empirical findings, it depicts the development of HRM in Israel throughout its existence, up to its present state. The HRM function is examined in the light of the dynamics of economy, technology and the legal system. We employ examples from two different sectors (high technology and healthcare) to reflect the strategy and practice that characterize HRM in Israel. We end by portraying a projected future picture of people management in Israel.
