Consequences of transnational strategies for IHRM practices. Evidence from German MNCs

By Dirk Holtbrugge and Alexander T. Mohr

Abstract

This paper analyses the consequences of multinational corporations’ (MNCs) move \ud towards integrated transnational networks (ITNs) which leads to an increase in the \ud interdependency of organizational entities. We suggest that this increased interdependency \ud requires new ways of coordination that change the nature of international human resource \ud management (IHRM) practices in MNCs. In this paper, we present a framework that addresses \ud these effects and empirically test it using data from a questionnaire survey among 142 overseas \ud subsidiaries of German MNCs. The findings suggest that shifts towards integrated transnational \ud networks have consequences for the use and design of a number of IHRM instruments. We \ud conclude by discussing the implications of our findings for IHRM practitioners and scholars
