The case study aims to investigate human resource management issues of national importance, and specific recruitment issues important to the company.
Students studying, e.g. Human Resource Management/Developing Human Resources as courses within an undergraduate business degree program. The audience is also targeted through courses that include the study of cross cultural management/diversity.
An industrial organization in the United Arab Emirates has a multinational workforce, where many employees are recruited from overseas. The recruitment process necessitates liaison with recruitment agencies at a distance, and locally with the government labor office.
Expected learning outcomes
Students will be able to:
analyze that companies exist in an external environment that impacts on their internal policies;
describe the importance of quality assurance to the HR function in an organization; and
explain how the HR department works closely with all departments in an organization.
