This symposium is on HCNs, the local employees in MNC foreign subsidiaries. HCNs are central actors in the MNC, yet, they are often treated as subordinated to expatriates in both research and practice. The symposium shifts the attention from expatriates to HCNs. It consists of two parts – a coordinated presentation by five panelists (four researchers and one practitioner) and an interactive discussion with the symposium participants. The symposium is relevant as it addresses issues related to a) the majority of MNC employees in b) a context determined by increasing barriers to global mobility, making HCNs even more vital for MNCs.
