A Hybrid Model of Human Resource Management

  • Satoko Watanabe
Part of the Palgrave Macmillan Asian Business Series book series (PAMABS)


Analyzing the motivation patterns of the four major position groups within an organization (executives; gold-collar employees; permanent blue-collar, clerical and service employees; and nonpermanent blue-collar, clerical and service employees), Watanabe presents the hybrid human resources management model most effective for each group. The model combines the mutually complementary aspects of the Japanese and Anglo-Saxon styles of management to make the most of the strengths of both. Although the two styles are often thought to be diametrically opposed, the proposed hybrid system, incorporating effective practices from both, can be successfully applied in many countries of the world.
