Abstract

In this paper, we explore three Korean Chaebols, Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, and SK Telecom, in terms of their strategic similarities and differences in developing and maintaining global managers. After reviewing the basic features pertaining to human resource systems in these firms, we focus on their global human resource management practices and identify characteristics specific to each as well as and factors that they have in common. We then discuss how the resource-based view of the firm suggested by Barney (1991) explains specific and generic features of each company’s global human resource development system. We also discuss whether some of the specific global human resource practices in these companies could be transferred to other multinational companies outside ofKorea.
