Question description Task description & requirements
Assume you are the HR Director for an MNE that has numerous international assignments. A new, extremely important assignment has arisen from the business side of this MNE in Santiago, Chile. You are expected to send two of your best employees from a business unit in Poland, with their families, to manage this assignment for three years. Neither of these employees has worked in Chile before. You want to ensure that these employees have a smooth transition to the new international workplace environment and reduce the likelihood that they will become failed expatriates.
1. Discuss the key challenges that you need to address before sending these expatriates for the assignment in Santiago.
2. Prepare a formal briefing for these expatriates on how to best manage their assignment in what is, to them, a different environment. Include justification for your recommendations.
A minimum of 15 references is required, including academic journal articles, to support your answers.
