In this chapter, we highlight some of the most influential approaches to understanding variations in HRM policy and practice, and draw out the implications of recent theoretical
developments. Although the different comparative approaches vary in the relative attention they accord to the specific details of HRM practice, they all make broad predictions as to the impact of context on the relative attention accorded to a firm’s employees and whether they are treated primarily in instrumental cost‒benefit terms.
