Abstract
Human resources is one of the key assets of organizations at both national and international levels and suggests that it becomes more complex once an organization is operating across borders. This research project was conducted in the context of the human capital of Laos as the host country. A questionnaire was administered to 90 employees of five international organizations in August 2013. The main finding was that the key constraint to practicing IHRM in Laos is the shortage of skilled labour. The belief also exists that education level supports employees in their job, bul the result was not significant. The result was significant that education, regardless of level, can support employees ' capacity to do their job.
