This study highlights the perceptions that matter to host country nationals’ (HCNs) decisions to share knowledge with expatriates above and beyond their job roles. Using the survey data collected from HCNs in Australia, China, India, and Singapore, the results demonstrate that HCNs’ identification with the MNE is positively related to their extra-role knowledge sharing with expatriates. We also found HCNs’ perceived support for career development offered by their subsidiary units is also positively related to their extra-role knowledge sharing with expatriates. Further, the results indicate that HCNs’ perceived career support moderated the relationship between their identification with the MNE and knowledge sharing in a way that identification is more strongly and positively related to knowledge sharing when perceived support is high than it is low. We provide a social identity- and exchange-based view on HCNs’ knowledge sharing. In the seminar, post-hoc analyses based on sub-samples from the four countries will also be presented as to discuss possibilities of different levels of importance of the two independent variables (i.e. HCNs’ identification with the MNE and HCNs’ perceived support for career development offered by their subsidiary units) based on contextual differences in those countries.
