Abstract

This paper focuses on hiring and training practices in German and Indian automobile manufacturing companies. The differences in perception of sixty-four German managers and seventy-seven Indian managers of the HRM practices in their companies were explored by using the Best International Human Resource Practices Survey. The results of the quantitative analysis show no significant differences of perceptions among German and Indian managers. Further qualitative analyses noted subtle differences in the views of managers, it identifies a number of commonalities in hiring, training and development practices, although the intensity of their usage differs from case to case. Human resource managers still need to be culturally sensitive when devising human resource management systems in different industries and countries.
