We examined our assumption that expatriate managers’ cross-cultural motivation is an important antecedent of host country national employees’ organizational identification. We also explored our belief that tertius iungens-oriented coordination (i.e., management behavior that focuses on building trust and cooperation between headquarters and subsidiaries) partially accounts for the impact of expatriate managers’ cross-cultural motivation on host country national employees’ organizational identification. Results of our analysis of multilevel data from 76 Korean expatriate managers and 228 host country national employees working in Chinese subsidiaries, supported our hypotheses. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
