HR Human Resources (Management)
As a global HR specialist, what are the cross-cultural challenges you may face in attempting to use HR best practices as performance interventions in a multinational context? Critically evaluate this question by utilising the appropriate academic literatures to justify relevance and effectiveness of the HRM/OB tools under consideration.
Consider the following frame of reference:
? The theoretical and changing HRM landscape ? e.g., the move from Personnel Management, SHRM, RBV, models of HRM and HR Best Practices.
? Significance of HR best practices and organisational behaviour (OB) tools e.g. Employee Training, Performance Management, Empowerment, and Employee Commitment in assisting managers coping with cross-cultural dynamics of the contemporary workplace.
? Assumptions underpinning the way in which HR best practices are being propagated, particularly in different multinational/cross-cultural environments.
? The influence of culture vis-a-vis the ?enactment? of HR best practices and the attendant OB theoretical tools in the management of individuals and the organisation ? tease out the complexities and cultural tensions associated with implementation of HR best practices in a MNC.
