Abstract [en]

Why is it that when most employers are in dire need of highly qualified individuals with experience, they nevertheless tend to reject job applicants with a different cultural background? The reluctance behind employing immigrant experts is rarely made manifest intentionally or on ideological grounds, but the result of an unhappy, and largely inevitable, consequence of lacking experience of cultures other than one's own. With such experience and relevant knowledge of other cultures in place, discriminatory behaviour toward foreign skilled labour is likely to lessen considerably. The chapter suggest several HR practices which would facilitate their employment and integration into the organisation.
