Abstract

Little is known about the practice of human resource management (HRM) in either Jordan, or other Arab countries. Also, the few studies that are available, are not based on empirical realities, and tend to be anecdotal in nature.Importantly, the practice of HRM within Jordanian organisations cannot be expected to improve if its practitioners do not understand the nature of its current applications. Equally, there is no clear evidence as to the participation of HR managers in strategic decision making in the Jordanian private and public sectors.The aim of this paper is first to highlight and provide a stronger focus on the nature of HRM in Jordan; reflecting an awareness of national cultural values, and secondly; to identify possible future directions for HRM strategy development and professional practice in Jordan.
