This unit explores the impact of the global environment on the management of human resources. The unit explains the process of expatriation and repatriation in multinational corporations; analyses problematic issues associated with the recruitment, development, performance management, and remuneration of expatriates; and finally examines the impact of cultural and legal differences in a multinational setting on human resource policies and practices. You will gain a solid theoretical, conceptual, and practical understanding of the core HRM functions relevant to contemporary international corporations. In classroom settings, you will analyse and discuss how the theory can be applied in real-life case study examples. This format provides you with opportunities to analyse HR problems in the workplace and generate potential solutions while also developing your research and academic writing skills. Welcome to the unit.
