3RESEARCH COMPONENT: Expatriate Orientation Packet
Imagine that you are the HR manager of an organization that has overseas locations. You are going to send an employee on an overseas assignment. Chose a country in which either you or your team has an interest. Chose a specific city within that country. As the HR department, prepare an expatriate orientation booklet for this employee who will be going to your organization’s facility in this location. The employee you have chosen to send on this overseas assignment will be going with a spouse and two school age children. Page 1 of the project sets the stage by introducing yourself (the HR manager), your organization, the employee and the new assignment. Research & investigate what information about the country you would need to know. Create the orientation booklet, including both general information about the particular country you have chosen (e.g., cultural information, business etiquette, currency, exchange rate, language, schools, taxes, political structure, climate, etc.) and specific HR information (e.g., compensation package, relocation allowances, spousal/family assistance, cultural and/or language training, benefits, tax offsets, etc.). This is to be posted to the appropriate Blackboard Discussion Forum before midnight Wednesday,July 8th. You are expected to comment on one another’s expatriate packets before midnight Saturday, July 11th.
