Abstract

The formation of global norms that shape the nature of work is a crucial element to how multinational companies (MNCs) achieve a degree of HR integration across borders. We establish a ‘strategic action fields’ framework to guide research into global norm-making in MNCs in general and for analysing the work of those that we term ‘globalizing actors’ – those who are active in globalizing a firm’s management approach – in particular. We position our framework with relation to existing research in international HRM, and show how the field can benefit from achieving an approach to global norm-making that is contextualized, personalized and contested.
