Professor Morris teaches and conducts research in the areas of international business and strategic human resource management, particularly focusing on how global firms create value through people and knowledge.
“Creating and Capturing Value through Geographically Dispersed Employees”
One of the unique characteristics of the multinational enterprise is that it is comprised of a geographically dispersed, heterogeneous workforce that embodies local knowledge or location-specific human capital. This paper develops a framework to describe the process of how organizations engage the local workforce in knowledge combination and exchange in order to transform their human capital into a more globally relevant portfolio of knowledge. We explicate how new value is created for customers through this transformation process, and how the MNE may capture some of this value. Implications for theory are discussed and a research agenda is introduced.
