    Abstrakt

    When multinational corporations (MNCs) take over subsidiaries in other countries and institutional settings, their headquarters often encounter employment relations systems that differ markedly from the systems they know from their country of origin. Building on insights from social capital theory, we argue that MNCs benefit from employing HRM practices that are sensitive to the local cooperative culture on a micro level and to the industrial-relations system on a macro level as, in doing so, they often receive an unexpected return on their investments. This return takes the form of advantages in terms of work organization and a cooperative culture.
