Abstract
Institutional theory has largely ignored the institutional diffusion
across borders although it is a common phenomenon in this
interconnected world. We examined the influence of the MNC on
institutional diffusion in emerging markets. In a research setting of
hiring the disabled in Korea, hypotheses were tested with a sample of
948 firms including 101 MNC subsidiaries. Results support the
propositions that MNC subsidiaries from major advanced economies
hire more disabled workers, and this tendency is diffused to subsidiaries
from other countries in Korea. However, we failed to find the evidence
that MNC subsidiaries exert isomorphic pressures to local players.
