Abstract [en]

Establishing a subsidiary abroad has become a common way to grow for Swedish IT-companies and London is an important market. When establishing in London the subsidiaries must build a new organisation that can make the business successful. Obtaining and maintaining the human resources thus become very important. Our aim is to study how the culture in London affects the HRM of the small Swedish IT-companies in London. In order to explore and understand this topic we decided to do a qualitative multiple case study consisting of five small Swedish IT-companies that recently have established subsidiaries in London. This case study was carried out partly in London and in Stockholm. We have found that the culture in London affects the HRM in several aspects. The culture is characterised by, among other things individualism and masculinity, the tough competition in London and a different level of communication. This affects the planning, staffing/employment, development and career, and compensation and benefits.
