As I mentioned in my recent blog post, the president of IPMA-HR Joe Lunt indulged me by agreeing to a 16-minute video interview where I asked questions of Transatlantic comparison and contrast – check out the video interview below.

    Fascinating to note the the similarities/differences – bearing in mind the large Pond between us!

    Thanks Sharmini – yes you’re right that there’s 3,000 miles of water between the UK and the US but it feels like many of the people management issues are exactly the same. In my view my experience shows that globalisation is very much a part of our modern world. Economic globalisation started with the US as a superpower (both supplier and purchaser) and as we’ve seen with the collapse of the banking sector (which started with Lehman Borthers in the US) what happens in the US quickly follows in the UK – and other countries.

    Dean – yes, absolutely. I think the globalisation ‘theme’ has been long with us, but has come much more to the forefront since the bank collapse issues. (The geographical and political changes in Europe over the last 15 years being a real ‘taste’ of changing economic climates). There is, I believe, a positive opportunity to review best practice and compare with the USA – in addition to Europe – to ensure a proper, organic evolution of HR Services
