Abstract

Managing employees in the strong cultural context is a challenging task for a human resource manager who is not from the local culture. It is essential for multinational corporations to be culturally sensitive while they are dealing with local employees. Employees in some countries may not value a particular style of leadership while employees in other countries may see this type of leadership highly valuable. This study will answer two research questions: 1) examine whether local human resource managers are more preferred by the employees or expatriates are more preferred by the employees; 2) examine whether the cultural ideologies of managing human resources has greater impact on employee satisfaction or western ideologies of managing human resources has greater impact on employee satisfaction.
