Recruiting across cultures : a value-based model of recruitment

Publication Date


With globalization intensifying, knowledge of cultural differences becomes increasingly critical. In the area of recruitment, a cross-cultural knowledge base is vital as the demand for international talent poses escalating challenges to effectively attracting desirable applicants. However, we know very little about the effectiveness of recruitment practices across cultures because most studies have been conducted in the U.S. We propose a theoretical framework of recruitment exploring how cultural values influence the effectiveness of recruitment practices in different cultural contexts. We argue that cultural values may moderate relationships between recruitment practices and recruitment outcomes across all phases of the recruitment process and suggest implications for future research directions.
