About this Unit

There can be major challenges and complexities facing organisations when they become international in their scope and activities. Comparative people management practice varies from country to country, the reasons for this being partly institutional in nature and partly cultural. This unit explores how and why organisations trade and operate internationally, the different forms that international business operations take and some of the practical and ethical issues that international organisations face from a people management perspective.

What will you learn

You will analyse the different ways in which organisations operate, trade and expand overseas, discussing the ethical issues in the field of international management and employment. You will also learn about how and why people management practices vary between different countries and regions around the world. You will also focus on the staffing of international organisations, focusing in particular on the effective management of expatriate staff and the major alternative staffing strategies that international organisations follow. Finally, you will focus on the practicalities associated with managing people in an international context, specifically in the fields of performance management, diversity and inclusion, reward management, communication and employee voice, talent management and development, and flexible working practice.

  • —are experienced people practitioners
  • —are working in a senior people practice role and wish to extend and deepen their skills and understanding to shape strategy, policy and people
