The purpose of this research is to explore what perception high-skilled migrant workers do have about HRM Irish integration procedures, trying to identify practices and factors that can facilitate the integration of them in Irish workplaces, from HRM role.
This study was done from an inductive method using a qualitative and interpretative approach, considering high-skilled migrant workers in Ireland, and the perspective of one Irish HRM manager.
It seems that for high-skilled migrant workers is easy to integrate in Irish workplaces, where low levels of English are not related to exclusion. It also reflects, that in most of the Irish workplaces are assisting them with a supportive environment, managers and colleagues, and organisational practices as training, meetings and social activities. High-skilled migrant workers in Ireland consider practices such a training and integration activities with others, a work environment with supportive managers and colleagues, important to support their integration,
The role that the co-workers and managers have in their integration process seems very important, as the key actors in the integration of them, with the role of HRM. The main challenges that they face in their integration in Irish workplaces are related to the language and the culture of country, where those factors can even affect their integration process.
This research is a useful piece of work for HRM departments and governmental departments, that are working in the integration of high-skilled migrants, as it provides information about factors that can boost and interfere in their integration in Irish workplaces.
