Abstract

This study investigates how internationalization is associated with investing in HRM within entrepreneurial fi rms from emerging markets. Using a sample of 171 fi rms from India, China, and South Africa, we show that when firms internationalize either into more economically developed countries or into countries with stronger employment regulations, they also invest more in HRM practices. Moreover, fi rms led by CEOs with general management experience and those more concerned with meeting international standards invest more in HRM practices. Finally, HRM investments are also greater in entrepreneurial firms characterized by extensive international partnerships. Overall, our fi ndings suggest that internationalization by entrepreneurial firms in emerging markets is associated with developing HRM practices.
