Most future managers will either have an opportunity to work on an overseas assignment or will work with colleagues from another country. Having a greater understanding of employment relations in these countries may improve manager effectiveness. The purpose of this assessment is to critically examine employment relations research as it relates to your home country and another country of relevance to you. Select your home country and a country in which you are likely to work in the future, or a country from which you are likely to have co-workers.
Review the research literature and media articles on employment relations in these two countries. Compare and contrast contemporary employment relations practices in these two countries with examples of employment related practices. Discuss the sources of these issues with reference to theory.
Your analysis should demonstrate a clear understanding of the relevant academic literature. There is no minimum or maximum number of articles that you should read or include, but as a rough guide, a thorough analysis.
