The stakeholders of the company are strongly committed to human rights and equality. However, they are also interested in the financial aspect of outsourcing. The company is facing a dilemma – whether to transfer senior managers from France or to recruit them locally. You are hired as a HR consultant to advice on this issue. In particular, using relevant academic literature, you are required to: 1. Compare and contrast the institutional and cultural contexts in France and the developing country of your choice, with a specific focus on issues of human rights and equality, as well as financial interests. (30%/4.5 credits) Criteria for Assessment: Evidence of extensive reading and understanding of relevant concepts and theories. Use of a good range of reputable sources. Ability to apply theoretical knowledge to generate logical, clear and focused analysis of the contexts within the scenario of interest. 2. Critically discuss advantages and disadvantages of both approaches to staffing, including potential outcomes for the company. (25%/3.75 credits) Criteria for Assessment: Evidence of extensive reading and understanding of relevant concepts and theories. Use of a good range of reputable sources. Ability to apply theoretical knowledge to explore challenges posed by the given contextual circumstances. Clear and critical analysis with substantiated argumentation. 3. Provide recommendations for the HR department in light of the above discussion, considering recruitment, selection and training issues. (25%/3.75 credits) Criteria for Assessment: Demonstrable ability to generate thought-through, critical and logical recommendations based upon the foregoing analysis of the scenario. Recommendations are practical and feasible. References to relevant literature. 4. Critically consider limitations of your recommendations. (20%/3 credits) Criteria for Assessment: Critical review of suggested recommendations against the existing relevant scholarship. Evaluation of their drawbacks. Scrutiny of circumstances under which the proposed recommendations may be inefficient or impractical and consideration of alternatives more suitable in these conditions.
