Sammanfattning (abstract):
In 2011, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) formed the technical committee ISO/TC 260 for Human Resource Management (HRM) in order to develop international standards for the field (ISO 2011). According to Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the need for global standards within the field is warranted (SHRM 2012). The need to regulate and homogenize HRM activities and practices has emerged from MNC operating all over the world but nevertheless strive for harmonized personnel management and synchronized HRM practices and processes. A global harmonization of HRM is also considered a means of preventing and remedying excessive local HR-solutions, practices and processes. However, in comparison with others of ISOs TCs, there are rather few participating countries in the project. Sweden is one of them, and it has been tremendously hard for the local project leader to recruit participating organizations and HR-practitioners to the Swedish technical committee. This paper builds on interviews with participants who still remain and those who have dropped out, as well as field notes from committee meetings. The main purpose is to explain the lacking engagement for Global HRM standards from a Swedish point of view. The paper answers questions such as how the HR professional who participates in the work perceives global standards and what advantages or disadvantages global standards are perceived to have for employment relations and the HR-profession itself.
