Comparative Analysis

Human Resources (HR) Comparative Analysis This project will provide an in-depth look at how a major multinational company operates overseas in two separate countries (Japan and China).  Provide as much insight into, and explanation of, the differences or similarities as possible. Use your understanding of the impact of the contextual factors on the HR policies and practices to estimate what a country’s HR policies and practices are likely to be, just in case you can’t find specific information on them. Use this understanding in your discussion of the HR policies and practices each team finds the contextual factors of the countries. Make predictions about future trends toward possible convergence of HR policies and practices. You have been asked to compare and contrast two (Japan and China). You will make a presentation to the executive committee of your company (i.e., the class) regarding the pros and cons of each location from the HR perspective. That is, doing a comparative HR analysis. Ultimately, you will want to put forth its recommendations for a recommended country.   The Comparative Analysis Your company is looking for a location for a new production facility. This production facility will hire many local workers for all aspects of the facility (e.g., production, supervision, quality, shipping, and other line functions). There may be a few (but not too many) traditional expatriates in accordance with the country’s established regulations. Fill in some details about your hypothetical organization to make the presentation more interesting and more relevant. Prepare a report and make a presentation comparing and contrasting Japan and China. The focus of the report is how the management of your human talent will affect the ability to be successful in that region. You will need to discuss a variety of issues in order to conduct a thorough analysis. It is your prerogative to present the issues you believe are MOST RELEVANT for the given region. Basically, give us a well justified decision regarding the location you have selected from an HR perspective.   Details to Include Details you should include in your research paper: The country comparison project: compare and contrast (Japan and China) Labor relations (unions) the likely effects, and the characteristics of the HR department or function of two separate countries (Japan and China).   I.       Labor and management relations challenges that impact the decision-making process of global leaders II.     Medical and Health Systems III.   Women in business IV.  Ethical concerns regarding hiring, child labor, bribery, etc       Papers will be graded according to the rigor of the questions asked, the research and information provided, how well the questions are answered in the research, and the depth and breadth of their research scope. Papers will be graded giving 20 percent for subject, 40 percent for illustrating international HR strategy, 20 percent for the depth and breadth of research and documentation, and 20 percent for the overall presentation, including graphics. Generally speaking, papers that are merely informational are not sufficiently rigorous to show academic understanding and strength. A paper that develops the strategic link between international human resources and global business strategy and follows the business strategy through to the human resources strategy and the specific issues and tactics, is the type of paper each group is expected to produce.       Team Paper – Grading Rubric Content Area Subject, cities selected, how comparable, why important, relevant and sufficient background information produced and presented 50 Points 20% International Human Resource Strategy assembled and examined, philosophical approach assessed, used more than sufficient “Details” listed above 100 40% Research and Documentation correctly applied at a graduate level of analysis.
