dc.titleFrench multinational companies' strategies and co-ordination mechanisms: the role of human resource management in Europe and Nigeriaen
dc.typeArticle accepté pour publication ou publié
dc.description.abstractenThe everchanging European context may well lead to the evolution of MNCs' strategies in Europe and to the evolution of the control mechanisms within their subsidiaries. The author analyses the issue from the angle of human resources management, considered as an informal control tool that is widely recognized by both scholars and managers. This research therefore aims at analysing whether or not and how HRM systems embody a possible integration process in the European economic space. The methodology is based on a case study from a French multinational company belonging to the automobile industry while the investigation, a comparative analysis of the headquarters-subsidiaries relationships in England, Spain and Nigeria, points out the specificity of the European context regarding corporate strategy orientations, subsidiary roles and personnel transfer policies. The major conclusions from such an analysis suggest a framework that gives prominence to the differentiation of the management process between Europe and Nigeria. These results confirm previous literature on co-ordination mechanisms in complex business organizationsen
