Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the human resource management implications associated with the rise of right-wing populism. Our perspective is based on a review of the managerial, policy, and academic literature. We highlight some of the potentially negative human resource management consequences for markets in the U.K., U.S., and around the world that result from declines in social protection, a rise in racism, a decline in diversity or acceptance of diversity, as well as barriers to the mobility of labour, immigration, and trade, among other problems.
