Abstract

The aim of the paper is to portrait some winning as well as failing strategies in human resource management (HRM) in cross-border acquisitions in Poland. The focus is on barriers to interactions in cross-border acquisitions that affect personnel management. There is an assumption that the effective overcome of these barriers reduces tensions in interpersonal relationships in acquisitions and thus contributes to the winning HRM strategies. The author tries to identify the determinants of successful approaches to managing interactions of people within foreign subsidiaries of multinational companies (MNCs) established via acquisitions, basing on the cases from Poland.
