For a firm involved in international business, there is always a great need to adapt to the international business demands. In this case, a polycentric staffing approach becomes inappropriate while an ethnocentric plan becomes better. In the case of the issue of the pay of the expatriates, the main determinant is usually based on that of the home country of the expatriate. The things which become negotiable are things like the allowances which are usually based on the cost of the host country. This clearly shows that firms pursuing such international business strategy adopts a geocentric staffing model. Thus, the link is that the human resource management policies may differ based on the country of origin of the expatriate.
