Over the last decades, HRM has received increasing attention in family business scholarship. However, works on HRM in the context of family firms remain relatively low as compared to the more general body of studies on human resource management. This Special Issue of the German Journal of Human Resource Management (GHRM) discusses facets of how family firms configure HRM and set HR practices. It contributes to developing family business HRM scholarship further by offering the HR system framework, by suggesting directions for future research and by advancing our conceptual and empirical understanding of HRM in the context of family firms.
