Asia Pacific Journal of Human Resource: Vol. 55 No. 4 October 2017
As one of the largest economies in the world, China has attracted much research attention. Globalization has led to many changes in the country, not least in the nature of its employees expectations at work. This calls for new investigations into organisational phenomena such as leadership style, the psychological contract of employees, work-family balance and so forth. Globalization of China's economy also attracts individuals to seek their fortune in China, creating new implications for Human Resource Management (HRM). This issue containts five papers that examine a number of critical HRM issues: work-family balance, ethical leadership, psychological contracts at work, motivation of public servants and self-initiated western expatriates, within the Chinese context. In addition, we publish a paper on the employability of graduates and the need for educational providers in Australia to produce graduates with the competencies required of HR practitioners.\
The first paper by Wang, Kwan and Zhou examines the antecedents to work-family balance for Chinese employees. In the next paper of this issue, Ko and colleagues consider the complex interplay between ethical leadership, healthy guanxi and organisational citizenship behaviours (OCB) amongs Chinese workers. The third article, by Cheung, Wong and Yuan, explores how mutual trust between a subordinate and a supervisor can influence the fulfilment of a psychological contract, and how this relationships impacts employee performance. Given the increasing focus on the employability of graduates and the need for educational providers to produce graduates with the competencies required of HR practitioners, the next study by Coetzer and colleagues explores how educational offerings can be more constructive aligned to competency-based frameworks, such as the Australian Human Resource Institute (AHRI) 'model of excellence'. The fifth article of this issue returns to an examination of employee behaviours in China, that the authors (Sun and Gu) examine the factors that motivate public servants in China, and question whether public servants are inspired by a desire to serve the public, or to further their career interests. And in the final paper of this issue, Makkonen presents the results of a qualitative inquiry into the value and employability of westerners who are new, self-initiated expatriates (NC-SIEs) in China.
