The present study aims to capture and describe current and future trends in the implementation of recruitment and selection practices in Greek hotel industry, as well as to attempt a comparison of this implementation between Greek hotel units and foreign hotel units (MNEs) operating in Greece. The study’s objective is to capture differences on the variety of methods and tools used, the way they are implemented and the level of effectiveness in this implementation. It also attempts to identify the impact of organizational factors on the choice of the mix of recruitment and selection methods and tools used. The hereby research also aims to examine the level of transfer of HRM practices from the parent company/hotel headquarters, to the subsidiary as well as the factors (in organizational level) influencing the transfer. The final objective is not only to depict these differences and transfer trends but also to explain them based on the relevant literature and set the basis for future research in the field.
