The course provides an overview of international human resource management. The globalization of business is having a significant impact on human resource management. Decisions have to be made on how to staff international operations; where and how to recruit and select personnel; how to train employees for international assignments and evaluate their performance; what compensation to provide them; how to facilitate the return of international employees to their parent organization; and how to handle international labor relations. The course will include a class project to develop an international human resource operating manual for a multinational enterprise.
