From the Paper:

"Rapid and accelerating developments in information and communications technology have added much to the strength and extent of its effects. The impact of globalisation extends to human resources management (HRM): developing new professional and occupational sectors, improved knowledge, research, skills and competencies. At the same time, it is increasing competition, performance requirements and the demand for active participation in social development. Confronting the challenges of globalisation requires the design of structural strategies and organisational policies to facilitate the empowerment of employees, redesigning jobs, adopting flexible employment options and utilising technology with the knowledge available . While some western researchers attempt to pinpoint the most significant challenges confronting HRM as globalisation increases, HR professionals in the Arab world in general and Saudi Arabia in particular perceive an urgent need to recognise such challenges and highlight them for both researchers and managerial leaders, so as to soften their impact on civil service organisations in general and on HRM functions in particular, in addition to developing appropriate strategies for confronting globalisation itself and lessening its influence."
