Abstract

This chapter outlines the importance of cross-cultural management studies to comparative employment relations, examining its roots from Hofstede onwards, yet critiquing this as providing blunt tools. It proposes a multicultural interfaces approach that analyses multiple influences through the agency of individuals, arguing that the quest to distinguish between the cultural and institutional is fraught with problems, also challenging the positivist comparative approach, asserting that there is no view from nowhere.
