For this Module 6 Milestone assignment, create a framework from which an international human resource management function can address cultural challenges. Within your framework, devise a model that includes due diligence steps, merger steps, and post-merger steps that specifically address cultural acclimation and environmental acclimation, as well as bringing two workforces together.
This Milestone assignment should be no more than two pages in length (not including cover and reference pages), so focus on being clear and concise. APA format and 3 academic sources.
Strategy 7: Gender Issues in the Expatriate World
For this milestone, put yourself in the position of the vice president of international human resource management for a multinational corporation. As has been the case with the other Milestone assignments in this course, this will be part of the creation of an international human resource management program. However, this Milestone assignment will pose a unique challenge to you in that you will explore the issues of gender, particularly for female employees in the expatriate world. To get a well-rounded perspective on gender issues, assess the acceptance of female expatriate employees in three (3) of the five (5) regions of the world that represent the majority of the expatriate opportunities around the globe: 1) the Middle East, 2) Latin America, 3) Africa, 4) Asia, and 5) Europe.
While you are not required to provide a step-by-step process related to deploying a female expatriate as this is already part of your IHRM employment opportunity program, you must create a memo for the Board of Directors that provides an overview of female expatriate acceptance in each of the regions you selected and assesses the opportunity to promote gender equality and overcome barriers in these regions. This Milestone assignment should be no more than two pages in length (not including cover and reference pages), so focus on being clear and concise. APA format, 3 academic sources.
LAST PART FINAL ESSAY
Framework of Strategies for IHRM Functions
The Portfolio Project for this course will challenge you to create a broad framework of strategies for an international human resources function. In this final module, you will complete your last strategy and then compile all of your strategies to create a broad framework for developing an international human resources functional strategy process.
Strategy 8: Alignment of HR and Strategic Business Units
Develop a working framework to guide an HR function to better align itself with the strategic business units of an organization. Further, use the same framework guide to develop a human capital profit process (developing, nurturing, and rewarding people) to aid the organization’s bottom line and to better align the human resources function with other strategic business units.
Compilation of Strategies:
Now compile Strategies 1-8 in a single document with a header for each strategy and a complete reference page for all sources. Incorporate the feedback provided by your instructor throughout the course and carefully revise and edit your entire IHRM framework. The completed framework should include an overall introduction to the framework and a conclusion that explains its merits to form a single, cohesive project.
Your final Portfolio Project (Framework of Strategies for IHRM Functions) should meet the following guidelines:
- Full 15 pages in length (not including cover and reference pages).
- Supported by a minimum of 13-16 academic sources (news, wiki, blogs not allowed)
- Formatted according to APA format.
