In this study we investigate whether and to what degree subsidiaries of US companies in Europe adapt their calculative human resource management practices to varying national institutional contexts. We compare their practices with those of indigenous firms in Ireland, the United Kingdom and Denmark/Norway. The analysis indicates that subsidiaries of US companies while showing some adaptation are partly immune to the specific national contexts in which they operate.
