Abstract

As Korean multinational corporations (MNCs) expand their businesses into major Asian economies and intensify the depth of engagement with key Asian emerging markets, one of the key issues is how they manage their overseas workforce in foreign operations. The chapter presents a case study which examined a Korean parent company’s approach to its Indian subsidiaries’ employment practices as well as their responses to the Korean parent. A multi-sited case study of the Korean MNC in the auto industry, conducted at the headquarters in South Korea and at Research and Development (R&D), manufacturing and sales subsidiaries in India, exhibit an incident of the “dominance effect” and highlight the role of Korean MNCs in the diffusion of so-called, “global best practices” to India, one of key emerging markets in Asia.
