HRM in Mozambique: Homogenization, path dependence or segmented business system?
AbstractA central debate in Human Resource Management (HRM) in emerging economies is whether nations follow distinct paradigms, or if there has been homogenization towards low value-added policies or 'best practice' HR systems. The literature on comparative capitalism indicates the existence of continuities and path dependence, but often neglects emerging markets. This article seeks to address this gap through exploring the nature of HRM in Mozambique and its relationship to business systems theory. Survey results indicate diversity between companies, suggesting a segmented business system, and the article concludes by discussing the implications of these findings for government policy and management practice.
