Welcome to the first of our set of Special Editions of the New Zealand Journal of Human Resource Management (NZJHRM). The idea behind the current set of Special Issue’s was trying to promote emerging research and researchers from New Zealand and Australasia undertaking research of interest to Human Resource Management professionals, academics, and researchers. A number of these papers were presented at the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) Conference in Auckland 2008 and as such, I would like to acknowledge the initial work of reviewers from the conference through the various HRM-related streams. The new focus of the NZJHRM has been broadened to encompass the wider settings of other Australasian countries because often the lessons these studies provide are as applicable to New Zealand as they are to their specific local setting. The present Special Issue covers a wide variety of cultural settings including Australia, Malaysian, and India. Given the growth of globalization and the cultural diversity found in New Zealand, I believe the lessons found here are likely to be at least somewhat transferable to our New Zealand setting and should provide greater understanding of commonalities in HRM within our Australasian region.
