Article
Ulrich’s framework of the human resource business partner model (HRBPM) suggests that both the strategic HRM roles (i.e. strategic partner and change agent) and operational HRM roles (i.e. administrative expert and employee champion) jointly add value to an organization.

This study evaluates national culture's influence on the incentive practice-firm performance relationship. Hofstede's work (1993) and institutional theory (North, 1990) suggest national culture will moderate incentive effectiveness, while others suggest it has minimal impact (Gerhart & Fang, 2005). We find performance orientation (PO), in-group col...
Article
