IHR in Indian MNCs puts little or no focus on specific training for host-country nationals (HCNs). The purpose of this study is to gain deeper understanding of Indian MNCs’ international human resource (IHR) training in the context of MNC strategy and international human resource training programs addressing expatriates and host country nationals (HCNs). develop and maintain qualified and motivated people. and implementation of core values necessary to attract. Another important finding is that the IHR strategy and corporate strategy must be linked in order for either one to be successful. Furthermore. IHR training within Indian MNCs greatly emphasises continuous competence development. . To reach our purpose we have chosen a qualitative and descriptive approach and conducted two in-depth research surveys with international human resource personnel at Indian divisions of MNCs Company1 and Company2. knowledge sharing. Regarding expatriate training programs the study showed that cross-cultural training (CCT) is used to some extent as well as language training and pre-departure visits.ABSTRACT MNCs today operate in a complex and uncertain environment which requires them to devote increased attention to international human resource management (IHRM) as well as training of international managers. Findings show that Indian MNCs focus attention to similar aspects within IHR training and that differences were greater regarding the companies expatriate training programs.
