Over the past decade, research has not adequately looked into understanding how location and firm-specific home and host country factors influence the adaptation of human resource management practices in foreign subsidiaries of emerging multinational enterprises in developed countries. Instead, research has focused mainly on developed multinational enterprises from Western countries. This study draws on data collected through case studies and interviews from senior managers to provide insights into the effects of a range of institutional factors that shape the adaptation of HRM practices in emerging market multinationals. Findings indicate that such enterprises do not face hurdles in transferring their home-country HR practices to their overseas subsidiaries due to certain advantages which allows them to operate in an ethnocentric manner.
