This study examines the adaptation of human resource management (HRM) approaches and practices within Egypt's public sector in response to the influences of globalization. As globalization continues to shape economic and social landscapes worldwide, it profoundly impacts organizational structures, policies, and practices, including those related to HRM. Focusing on the public sector in Egypt, a region experiencing significant socio-economic transformation, this research investigates how globalization influences recruitment, training, performance management, and employee relations policies. By analyzing empirical data and case studies, the study identifies challenges and opportunities faced by HRM professionals in aligning local practices with global standards. The findings contribute to understanding the dynamic relationship between globalization and HRM in developing economies.
