dc.description.abstract Globalization brought in its wake significant extrinsic and intrinsic changes. Around 62 million people are productively linked with transnational organizations worldwide (UN report, 2006) International HRM (IHRM)has gained center stage, in particular, dealing with human side of the organization in the global work management operations across the globe, regions, and countries of the world to realize leading competitive edge (Dowling et al., 2013). Morgan (1986) noted that IHRM has three critical dimensions, namely(1)human resource activity, (2) types of employees, and (3)countries of operations. Scholars like (Sparrow & Marchington 1998; Sparrow et al., 2004; Legge, 2004) have validated that importance to human resources in organization results in increased productivity and creates domino effect on national domestic product (GDP) of the country. PROBLEM STATEMENT   Despite the significance of automotive industry, dominated by foreign-based organizations, to the economy of Pakistan, there is dearth of literature/ research to study the underlying determinants of international HRM practices and the challenges of strong localization factors which impede achieving global standardization in the sector, and its impact on productivity and growth .   OBJECTIVES OF THE PAPER To examine the IHRM drivers for global standardization in the organization. To determine the IHRM drivers for localization in the organization. To determine the IHRM practices and challenges in Pakistan context. To determine the need of research in IHRM practices in the backdrop of automotive sector contribution in Pakistan’s economic growth. Methodology focused on empirical literature in the area and synthesis construed from it. en_US
