Naik, Vaidehi (2009) WHAT EXPLAINS VARIATIONS IN TRAINING ACROSS DIFFERENT NATIONAL CONTEXTS?THE CASE OF ABC PVT. LTD. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)] (Unpublished)
This dissertation seeks to explore the effects of institutional configuration and form of capitalism prevalent in a nation on the organisational practices. For the purpose of the research a case study approach is used by taking a MNC in the ITES (Information Technology Enabled Services) sector. A MNC would help to gain an understanding of the unique institutions operating in a nation that will lead to dissimilar organisational practises in subsidiaries of the MNC. As globalisation has led to blurring of the political, social and economic boundaries of nation states and markets, it is important to know whether and to what extent the diverse institutions in a national context have a role to play in determining organisational practices or are multinational companies overtaking these institutions in regulating employment. This leads us to the further question of whether labour is deregulated and emergent economies is being protected or is being exploited by Multinationals to make the most of the competitive advantage gained by cheap labour and wages. The implication of rise in MNCs as a result of globalisation on the individual, organisation and society is also examined.
