Abstract

Local isomorphism constitutes the regulatory, cognitive and normative profile of a host country. Theregulatory institutional setting reflects the rules and legislation governing collective bargainingagreements, trade unions, local content laws and employment relationships. The cultural or cognitivedimension supports the widely held cultural and social knowledge and the normative profileacknowledges the influences of social groups and organizations on acceptable normative behaviour.Earlier literature lends support to the importance of institutional profile and its influence on the designand implementation of multinational enterprises’ human resource management policies and practices.This paper seeks to advance the concept of local isomorphism and highlight the implications of localisomorphism for future research on the transfer of multinational enterprises’ human resourcemanagement practices across and between subsidiaries.
