In order to maximize performance, establish competitive advantage or expand into foreign markets, Canadian companies are becoming more global in their outlook and practices. An important element in the success of these companies is the effective management of human resources at home and abroad. This course in international human resources management will allow students specializing in human resources (HR) management to understand the importance of international business and to efficiently manage the recruitment, development and compensation of expatriate managers and locally engaged international employees. Cultural differences and the strong influence of diversity will be addressed in terms of performance management, employee relations and social responsibility, particularly with regard to foreign country operations. Key issues in international human resources management will be studied, supported by examples from a wide selection of companies, joint ventures or multinational corporations present in Asia, Latin America, Africa, Europe and North America.
