International Journal of Human Resource Management. 2013. Vol. 24. No. 19. P. 3630-3643.
Gurkov I. B., Settles A. M.

Russian Human Resource Management practices remain durable even with onslaught of economic change and exposure to global HRM practices and international competition. Based on survey results of 201 CEOs of domestic industrial companies located in central region of Russia we identify the resilient archetype of Russian HRM system. Even in companies that have achieved high levels of profitability or those that engage in innovative practice continue to practice retrograde HRM techniques left over from an earlier era. We are able to identify strategic misfits that are a direct result of the continuation of rigid HRM system that prevent the development of an organizational climate to support innovative or dynamic firms.
