For this assignment, you will be developing the final briefing to the CEO about your fictitious company the month prior to opening the new facility in Europe. In a 12-slide presentation, not counting the title and references slides, address the topics below. You covered some of these in earlier units, as Phases I and II in the timeline to open the new facility.
- Describe the human resource implications that international growth puts on the firm. Be sure to address ethics, safety and security, and trade unions.
- Describe the selection process of expatriate employees.
- Describe the issues related to training and developing expatriates for international assignments.
- Define the key components of an international compensation program. Define in which regional economic zones (e.g. EU or APEC) your fictitious company will reside, and the HR implications of the zone.
For this presentation, be sure to cover each of these important points, how these challenges were met, and include expectations for the new company and staff.
Include speaker notes for each slide. Graphics and images may be included, but they are not part of the criteria for your grade.
