We will then pay particular attention to four perspectives. The first two perspectives relate to HRM in specific organisational contexts: (1) Project-based organisations and (2) Public organisations and non-profit organisations. The last two perspectives relate to HRM in a wider societal and international context: (3) International HRM, and (4) HRM and societal trends.
