This workshop seeks to explore current HR strategy and practices that multinationals have adopted and applied in transition economies, bringing together the latest state of the art knowledge, and emerging research findings. Some of the current issues appear to be related to the development of either ‘regional specific’ HR policies, the ‘importing’ of Anglo-Saxon HR models, the diffusion of the European social model, and/or the ‘cutting and pasting’ of HR models by foreign multinationals working in the region. This workshop is an attempt to begin synthesizing HR understanding and knowledge in order to critically evaluate the overall current state of affairs and point towards future practical and research oriented opportunities within these countries. It is also our hope to contribute to existing understanding of HRM in MNCs by adding knowledge on MNCs from emerging economies and on issues that have been so far unexplored.
