This paper provides an introduction to the special issue on human resource management (HRM) in supply chains. To this point, HRM researchers have paid little attention to the field of supply chain management (SCM) and how HRM practices may help firms manage their supply chains more effectively. We provide an overview of supply chain management for readers new to this field. We conceptualize three potential applications of HRM in supply chains, and then use our framework to introduce and link the papers that comprise the special issue.
