Abstract: In multi-brand corporations, corporate HRM practices might reduce internal/external turnover. Unsatisfied internal mobility from lower to higher status brands might produce external turnover. Different brand images weakens corporate HRM practices’ effect on internal/external turnover. Companies should compensate for lower attractive brands with specific brand unit HRM practices.
