I met with Richard Croucher, Professor of Comparative Employment Relations and Associate Dean Research at the Middlesex University Business School (MUBS), UK. He is a well known senior researcher, research manager and teacher in employment relations and HRM with demonstrable international links and reputation. He has extensive publications, strong track record in raising funds from important funders and managing research projects. Prof. R. Croucher is in Mauritius to conduct research on ‘The (non) adoption of MNC Human Resource Management Practices: Host country Perceptions’ at the Faculty of Law and Management, University of Mauritius. The project will examine the adoption, modification or rejection of MNC Human Resource Management practices, focusing on those that have shown to promote information sharing and thus sustainable competitive advantage.
