Abstract

This paper examines the development of global skill webs in transnational companies (TNCs). Based on research in seven countries, it argues that skill webs are becoming more strategic in character as companies seek competitive advantage by relocating high-skilled work to low-cost locations. The paper explores the implications of these findings for both the 'conventional' approach to international human resource management and that influenced by the 'varieties of capitalism' School.
