Researchers are beginning to draw attention to the human side concerning the implications of the digital age. Cultural challenges faced by international virtual teams, management dilemmas relative to resource issues when dealing with cultural diversity, and human resource management challenges confronted by technical environments and nationally-qualified labor shortages are on the rise and need to be addressed as society enters a new era. This pivotal reference source provides vital research on the promotion of new cultural models representative of the contemporary world and subject to digital transformation. Covers topics such as digital diversity, shared culture, and employee motivation, and explores increasing the relevancy of culture in the globalized 21st century and methods of revising current HR management policies. For managers, human resources management, executives, sociologists, consultants, practitioners, industry professionals, researchers, academicians, and students.
