Abstract: This paper analyzes employment growth in Belgian multinational enterprises’ headquarters relative to their affiliates. We find that headquarters have on average 2.5% more employment growth than their affiliates. When they go through restructuring headquarters reduce employment by 4.4% less than their affiliates and affiliates located further away from their headquarters suffer more. This effect almost doubles for firms that operate in manufacturing.
