    Assessments of the appropriateness and inappropriateness of behaviors play an important role in interactions in multinational corporations (MNCs). We develop a model of appropriateness that that illustrates how various arrangements in MNCs (e.g., geocentric staffing) may work to influence the frequency of (in-) appropriateness assessments as well as the magnitude of reactions to such assessments via their influence on members' ingroup-outgroup categorizations.
