The central topic of the paper is human resource management in multinational companies as one of the consequences of globalization. The paper particularly focuses on the use of expatriates as high-performance workers. The aim of the paper is to provide an analytical view of the work of this type of employees in branches of multinational organizations operating in Slovakia. The paper presents research results aimed at analyzing the employment of expatriates in branches of multinational companies in terms of selected features (size of branch, how long the company operates on the Slovak market and number of branches of an multinational company) and finding statistically significant links between the time an expatriate spends in the country and the impact he/she has on selected aspects of the company, namely innovation and new knowledge, his/ her share in addressing business challenges and on relationships at work from the perspective of branch managers of multinational companies. The research was conducted between January and May 2019 using a standardized questionnaire method on a sample of 138 managers of branches in which expatriates worked. The obtained data were processed by the methods of descriptive statistics and Chi-square test, through which three research hypotheses were tested.
