Staffing of Multi-national Enterprise (MNE)s has been simplistically described as involving three types of international employees: parent-country nationals (PCNs), host-country nationals (HCNs), and third-country nationals (TCNs). Deciding on the type of employee to hire for an international endeavor is a strategic HR decision. Review the Case Study 8.1: Firms Woo Executives from “Third” Countries (Global) (p. 241). Answer the four questions at the end of the case. Take into consideration that there may be additional categories of employees available for international assignments. In addition, when answering the case questions consider creative, versus traditional, solutions.
