Case Assignment

After you have read about Anglogold Ashanti in Chapter 10 of the Bluen book, please respond according to the following:

Create an artistic visual that shows five of the most important challenges of global talent acquisition specific to this employer and rank them in importance to their business success. Your visual can be a colorful chart, a flyer, or drawing, as long as it is in a format that is accepted in TLC. The use of color is encouraged for this assignment.

Then discuss in detail the top issue (#1) and your bottom issue (#5) and explain why you ranked them as you did. Your submission will likely contain two documents—the artistic visual doc and a Word doc.

Finally, look up the company/industry in each of the following:

a. IBISWorld (under library search box on TLC page, click “Additional Library Resources,” then click IBISWorld and search by company or industry).

b. Company’s website

c. Locate two high-quality articles related to challenges of global talent acquisition (conduct a research in the Trident Online Library about concepts in this assignment, such as expatriates, repatriation, ethnocentricity, and geocentricity. Peer-reviewed high-quality references are found in the online library).

Review what you have learned from your research in a-c above, especially as it updates the case information in Bluen’s book.  Also bring in Chapter 3 of the Bluen book to strengthen your submission.

Provide an introduction and a conclusion, cite sources, and include a References page.

Submit your visual and Word document to the assignment dropbox as part of your 3- to 4-page paper (not counting the cover page and References page) on or before the module due date.
