Managing human resources in Russia

This chapter outlines the recent trends, the current situation, and the likely development of Human Resource Management in the Russian Federation. The chapter is organized as follows: we briefly introduce the past experience of the Russian economy, describe the societal and institutional context of HRM, give details of the essential legislation and primarily pay attention to the essence of the HRM function – its place in company management, recruitment, selection, performance appraisal and remuneration practices, training and development. An illustrative case study presents all these points in their “natural” setting.
