Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

There is limited research on HRM systems in Indonesia, and especially in large private sector organisations and MNEs. The 2016 report indicated that over 360,000 employee days were devoted to staff training over the year. The employee composition is divided between 75% permanent and 25% contract employees.
