Summary Effective employee training is important to organisations as it improves quality of human resources, which in turn help achieve better organisational outcomes. The literature on education, training and other aspects of human resource development (HRD) among multinational companies (MNCs) in Asia is quite limited. This paper intends to explore training expenditure, training programs offered and training concerns indicated by companies, using a survey of 529 MNCs operating in six Asian countries (namely Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan). The findings show that the majority of MNCs surveyed recognised the benefits of employee training and invested heavily on training different types of employees in local subsidiaries. Organisational variables such as size, industry, parent source and proportion of international activity also affected training practices of MNCs. The paper identified some quality and relevance issue related to formal and externally-conducted training programs.
