As sustainability becomes an increasingly important element in global business, sustainable human resource management (sustainable HRM) has received attention from both researchers and practitioners. Key focuses of this area include how HRM systems can be sustainable and how HRM can promote organizational sustainability. However, the work on sustainable HRM is still in its early phase. There is no clear and consensual definition of sustainable HRM. The effectiveness of sustainable HRM practices is uncertain. Little is known about the antecedents of sustainable HRM. Therefore, this chapter aims to provide a brief review of the state-of-the-art and offer some future directions in this emerging area, with special attention to the relationship between sustainable HRM and innovation.
