According to the reports of the State Audit Office of Hungary, the rural development programmes between 2007 and 2011 have not indicated the expected impact on the rural welfare. This study focuses on finding the HR- related reasons to this effect. The recent market trend shows a significant shortage on labour force. Based on the current HR researches, rural areas are in an even worse situation because the migration of valuable labour force appeared there before the crisis. Considering these problems, the aim of this article is to present empirical evidence on the dispa- rities of HR practice in the Hungarian rural and urban areas. 2 International Journal of Engineering Business Management

Methodology and model development The current study aims to provide with a new perspective on an international research project. The goal of the CEEIRT research program was to map up the most important simila- rities and differences regarding the Central Eastern Eur- opean HR practices. After the outcomes of the project obviously highlighted the diversity among the European member states, it appeared to be an interesting question whether these characteristics could be observed within the countries as well or not? Furthermore, in case territorial disparities clearly occur, what are the circumstances and the reasons for that? The model of the CEEIRT research based on the following elements which strengthens it’s credibility. The first (2008–2009) research analysis, which became a basis for long-term research work in 2010 25–27 , and the present (2011–2013) research analysis are descriptive, drawing from objective data. The personal company inter- views and online data collection used the same question- naire for the ease of statistical analysis, the data collected were codified and the answer codes were analysed. While designing the research model (Figure 1), we drew both from our prior research 28 and international results. During the evaluation, the state of affairs we perceived was also cross-referenced with other research results’ experiences, as we based on: Models from the areas of HRM (Brewster et al. 28 ) and International Management. 29,30 While integrating these models, we also based on our 2004 research on 42 Hungar- ian local subsidiaries of multinational companies and the CEEIRT research’s analyses from 2008 to 2009 31 (step 1 – research on international and regional level). Our domestic and international experiences related to the CRANET (CRANET is a 42-country non-governmen- tal organisation HR research partnership, to which the Department of Leadership and Management, University of Pecs Faculty of Economics is a member since 2004, and the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences, Szent Istva ´n University (SZIU) since 2011) HR analyses con- ducted at the Department of Leadership and Management, Faculty of Economics, University of P´ecs; SZIU; Selye Ja ´nos University and the Faculty of Economics in Subo- tica, University of Novi Sad, Serbia 32–34 (step 2 – research on company level).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
