This paper examines multinational enterprises from the perspective of knowledge management. It has two goals: based on recent management research, it highlights first a few critical issues of knowledge transfer at multinational companies. After the review of literature, knowledge sharing is studied with the help of a research project conducted with the participation of the authors of this paper. The Central and Eastern European International Research Team (CEEIRT) – researchers from universities in Central and Eastern Europe – is studying the trends in the changing HR practices. Using data on 74 Hungarian subsidiaries of multinational enterprises, this paper analyses knowledge transfer aspects in the HR practice and compares them with international research results. Through this, the article contributes to better understanding of knowledge transfer processes within multinational organizations.
