This chapter addresses the development, convergence and divergence of human resources management (HRM)-related practices in Europe, focusing on specific under-researched regions to illustrate and compare employee-related systems, policies and practices applied to European businesses. It demonstrates that while there are clear regional clusters in Europe that develop in similar manners, the questions of complete European conversion is premature. This indicates the relevance of further research into HRM issues in the regional context of Europe and its various forms of market grouping, including the European Union (EU), European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and the European Economic Area (EEA).
