New Zealand organisations have outgrown their geographical boundaries. Globalisation and internationalisation are demanding that managers adapt new policies and procedures to stay competitive in the global markets. The multiplicity of stakeholders and diverse workforces require new leadership and attitudes for domestic, global and international human resource management. Human resource managers should be aware what global labour markets offer and also require of them such as adding value to organisations. Some influences on domestic and global human resources management are pointed out and discussed with possible solutions and trends. Traditional roles and responsibilities of business managers and HR managers need to change. As change agents and leaders they should be prepared to meet business changes to stay globally competitive.
