Global Knowledge Work: Diversity and Relational Perspectives
Publisher: Edward Elgar Pub
Publication Date: 2011-09-29
Number of pages: 296
This informative volume includes contributions from international scholars and practitioners who have been working with the concept of global knowledge workers from a number of different perspectives, including personal and academic life trajectories. They reveal that the relational framework of the three dimensions of analysis (macro-meso-micro) is relevant for analyzing the phenomenon of global knowledge workers, as expertise and specialized knowledge and its innovative application, together with the attraction and retention of talent remain key topics in the current socioeconomic conditions.
With a wealth of original research, this book will strongly appeal to researchers, practitioners, academics and managers in the fields of diversity, organizational studies, knowledge management and human resources.
