Title: HRM practices and MNC knowledge transfer
Author: Minbaeva, Dana B.
Abstract: The purpose of the paper is to determine and empirically examine the effect of human resource management practices on knowledge transfer within multinational corporations. It is suggested that the employment of human resource practices, which affect absorptive capacity of knowledge receivers and support organizational learning environment, is positively related to the degree of knowledge transfer to the subsidiary. Moreover, the higher degree of knowledge transfer is expected when human resource management practices are applied as an integrated system of interdependent practices. Hypotheses derived from these arguments are tested on the data from 92 subsidiaries of Danish multinational corporations located in 11 countries. Key words: knowledge transfer, multintional corporations, HRM, complementarity
