Assignment: Future role HRM
Assess the future role HRM must strategically play in the field of industrial labor relations as this pertains to employee relations and retention, nationally and internationally
The CEO has asked you and Jane to create a chart that he might use as part of his decision process in deciding what countries in which to locate overseas factories. He also wants an accompanying recommendation summary from an HR perspective.
Prepare a 6-column, 5-row chart for the following countries and parameters:
Columns (countries) are:
Rows (factors to research) for each country are:
Average manufacturing wage
Country’s minimum wage
Typical restrictive work rules where there are unions
How unions enhance or detract from company results
Country’s unemployment rate
It is unlikely that you will find all of the necessary data in one online database. Instead, you will have to research a number of different ones.
In addition, in some cases you may have to make calculations from a “base=100” report to get an actual dollar figure.
Ensure that you cite the references used, in proper APA format.
Wikipedia is an unacceptable reference
For minimum wages, try one of the following sites:
Minimum Wages database
List of minimum wages by country
For unemployment percentages try the following site:
Unemployment rate (most recent) by country (be sure to note the year of the data)
Your recommendation summary should explain which country you recommend for the future overseas expansion, based solely on the data in your chart
Your assignment will be graded in accordance with the following criteria. Click here to view the grading rubric.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
