Multinationals in their subsidiary operation may use any one of the typology such as Global, Multi-domestic, Transnational, and International strategy in order to manage and maintain their business abroad. In staffing the international operation, the organization may follow one of the three staffing approaches or a combination of three approaches (PCN, HCN, TCN) depending on their domestic circumstances and the life cycle of the MNC. In all the three staffing approaches PCNs, HCNs and TCNs are used.But they will differ in relative proportions. There is little evidence in support of the utilization of HCNs and TCNs. Most of the research focused on expatriates (PCNs) than HCNs and TCNs. Therefore we want to explore on what situations multinationals use HCNs and TCNs. Further the study investigates the alignment between international business strategy and executive staffing. Theoretical foundations are drawn basically from existing literature.
