PCN vs. HCN vs. TCN

  1. 1. PCN vs. HCN vs. TCN International HRM
  2. 2. Parent Country National • A parent-country national (PCN) is a person working in a country other than his/her country of origin (Home / Native Country). • Such a person is also referred to as an expatriate.
  3. 3. Host Country National • A host country national (HCN) is an employee of an organization who is the citizen of the country in which the foreign subsidiary is located.
  4. 4. Third Country National • Third Country National (TCN) describes and individuals of other nationalities hired by a government or government sanctioned contractor who represent neither the contracting government (Home Country) nor the host country or area of operations.
  5. 5. Example • Denise is a human resource (HR) specialist that works for a large multinational conglomerate. Her company is based in Seattle, Washington in the United States. However, the company employs people from over a dozen different countries and cultures around the world. Denise interacts with three general types of employees: parent company nationals, host country nationals, and third-country nationals. Let's take a look at each type:
  6. 6. Continue… • Denise works with Arnold. While Arnold is a citizen of the United States, he has taken an assignment with the company at its foreign subsidiary in Berlin, Germany. Arnold is considered a parent-national, also known as an expatriate. An expatriate is a citizen of a company's home country working abroad at one of the company's foreign subsidiaries. • Arnold works with Gunther in the Berlin office. Gunther is a citizen of Germany. He's considered a host country national, which is an employee that is a citizen of the country where a company's foreign subsidiary is located. • Adrienna works with Arnold and Gunther in Berlin. She's a citizen of Italy. She's considered a third-country national because she's an employee that is a citizen of one country, working in another country for a company headquartered in a third country.
