Khadra Dahou, Ishaq Hacini


Facing a globalized hyper-competitive economic environment and by necessity of becoming learning organizations, the importance of organizational learning (OL) has incredibly increased in multinational companies (MNCs) than those operating locally. The OL has become a distinctive competency that enables them invest successfully and compete overseas where they have to adjust their strategic choices to those regions in which they want to operate; especially in a newly emergent market of Algeria. In the other hand, managing a workforce of cultural diversity requires putting in place a clear strongly sophisticated policy; and having an international management cadre facilitate the mission of the MNCs in the different international settings. This research explores the extent to which the human resources management policies of the international hotels, installed in Algeria, affect the development of the organizational learning capability. The expatriates within those international hotels were asked to respond to the research survey. Results demonstrate a real positive significant effect of the international human resources management policies on the development of the organizational learning capability within international hotels installed in Algeria. In addition to the major role of the organizational learning capability in the strategic management and performance of the international hotels, applying the right international human resources strategies will yield sustainable international hotels competitive edge, mainly because of the sophistication of their services. They have to develop a cadre of top management with an international experience and capable to succeed in do business overseas and deal with and adapt to the different economic and cultural conditions of the host countries. This research may be first of kind in exploring the theme of organizational learning within MNCs, in an Arab developing country; specifically, the unique in studying the emergent promising Algerian sector of hospitality.
