Towards a Global Framework of Recruitment Practices: The Effect of Culture Applied to Tunisian Context

Karima Bouzguenda


In conjunction with the democratic process through which several Arab countries are going through, the article suggests a closer look to the manner human resources are managed in the Tunisian context prior to the revolution in order to detect the degree of compatibility with the democratic culture. The aim is to assess the impact of culture on recruitment trends and patterns as well as its incidences on current HRM systems. To this effect, a global framework of recruitment practices is developed based on the last two rounds of CRANET surveys. A comparative analysis shows that recruitment decisions in Tunisian firms are embedded in political and socio-cultural patterns leading to specific configurations of HRM systems.

Keywords: Recruitment practices, staffing, selection, HRM, culture, Cranet.
