Asia Pacific Journal of Human Resource: Vol. 55 No. 2 April 2017
In this issue of the Asia Pasific Journal of Human Resources we present six papers with a focus on the current trends in HR and important Hr functional areas that area that are often underresearched within the Asia Pasific region. These papers treat topic areas such as the growth of non-standard employment in Japan and Korea, and the associated role of institutional actors and impact on workers and the labour market. We also publish valuable papers on employe assistance programs, training and employe transfer and an examination of 360` assement techniques for management competencies, the implications of strong organizational identities for employees and organizational performance, as well as how government reforms can impact on the efficacy of recruitment and selection efforts in public sector organisations. As editors of the journal, we strongly encourage the submission of manuscripts that critically examine, using a both qualitative and quantitative approaches, the current trends in HRM practice and HRM functional areas.
The first paper of this issue by Cooke and jiang presents a sysmetic review of the antecedents and implications of the growth in non-standard employment relations in both Japan and Korea. The second paper by Joseph and Walker explores the effectiveness of employee assistance programs (EAPs) in Australia. The next paper, by Park, Lim and Chang, examines the complex interplay between organizational- and individualis-level factors when evaluating the effectiveness of training transfer in organisations – from the perspective of trainees and their supervisors. The fourth paper of this issue examines the role of assessing managerial competencies in the Australian healthcare sector using 360` assessment techniques. The fifth paper by Batra and Sharma explores the debate surrounding the competing outcomes of strong organizational identities, in the context of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) operating in india. The final paper, by Gavin and McGrath-Champ, presents an interesting analysis of how government reforms can impact on the efficacy of recruitment and selection efforts in public sector organisations.
