Over the last decade, a significant amount of research has been conducted on examining the control mechanisms used by developed MNCs to manage their subsidiaries in developing countries. However research is sparse in terms of understanding how emerging multinational corporations manage their subsidiaries in developed countries. The research draws on data collected through in-depth case studies to explore the people-centric controls used by Indian MNCs and their influence on the adaptation of HRM practices in their Australian subsidiaries. The findings reveal that Indian MNCs use people-centric controls to manage their subsidiaries that were facilitated by their global staffing practices and which allowed them to replicate their parent HRM practices to their subsidiaries in an ethnocentric manner.
