Purpose: The existing research on multinational companies (MNCs) tends to emphasise the diffusion of knowledge and skills in information, communication and technology (ICT) from the more advanced industrialised nations to less-developed or latecomer countries. Few studies have examined the ICT work force supply and development of local ICT skills among MNCs’ overseas subsidiaries. This paper aims to fill the gap by evaluating the issues relating to the host country’s ICT work force planning and supply and the recruitment and retention of ICT skills among MNCs at their local subsidiary. Design/methodology/approach: A survey of 100 MNCs in Taiwan, Republic of China was used for analysis. The self-administered questionnaire was designed to examine the extent of difficulty experienced by multinational companies in recruiting high, medium and low levels of ICT skills in the manufacturing and service sector. Attrition rate of the ICT skilled workers in Taiwan was also examined.
