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. 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). 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. Findings show that Indian MNCs focus attention to similar aspects within IHR training and that differences were greater regarding the companies expatriate training programs. IHR training within Indian MNCs greatly emphasises continuous competence development, knowledge sharing, and implementation of core values necessary to attract, develop and maintain qualified and motivated people. Another important finding is that the IHR strategy and corporate strategy must be linked in order for either one to be successful. Furthermore, IHR in Indian MNCs puts little or no focus on specific training for host-country nationals (HCNs). 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.
