In our days, society is greatly influenced and altered by the process of internationalization and globalization. Globalization refers to a whole set of changes, not to one single dimensional change. The process of internationalization puts a special and high importance on the work of human resources managers. In order to remain successful and competitive in the international business environment, companies have to pay close attention to cultural factors. These may considerably differ among workers in multinational companies. We are taking a careful look at human resource management in this new age, and especially at the impact of globalization and internationalization. Our case study is built on the company MOL, specifically on some of the activities it develops in the field of human resource management: training programmes, personnel motivation, career development. We highlight some of the critical aspects of human resources management at MOL, and see what lessons are being learned and what conclusions we can draw.
