Considers the concept of Human Resource Management (HRM), noting particularly its origin in the USA and critiques of the concept in Europe. Data from a major European research project are examined.

It is argued that there is a need for the development of a model which relates more closely than the American literature to European HRM; and some tentative thoughts about such a model are proposed.
