The purpose of this paper is to show that the use of evidence-based information from academic research
regarding HRM practices can have a positive impact on an organization's degree of competitiveness. This article
explains how the use of academic information sources results in greater organizational performance. Some
supporting empirical research findings are briefly reviewed. We then propose how the use of evidence-based
information in HRM practices can improve global operations. Different sources of academic research
information are identified and described. Some specific recommendations for accessing and using academic
research information are offered. Finally, a brief summary and some general conclusions are provided.
