In this paper several aspects of HRM in Chile will be examined. Initially Chile will be
analysed in the context of Latin American culture and history, as it shares a number of common
features with the rest of the countries of the region. Secondly, the arrival of HRM to Chile is
explored, as well as how it is affected by the particular characteristics of the country. Thirdly,
HRM research literature in the specific context of Chile is reviewed and analysed. Finally, some
consequences are discussed, and it is concluded that Chile shares a unique history, culture, social
particularities and problems with the other countries of the region, affecting the way in which
HRM is deployed in organisations. It is also concluded that more research in this context is
urgently needed.
