Final Portfolio Project
The Final Portfolio Project is a formal report of your achievements in the course. The purpose of this paper is for you to assess your learning as you prepare a major portfolio project. In this project, you will create an international small business unit (SBU) intranet-based employee manual.
Imagine that you are the international human resource (HR) director in a multinational company. The CEO and the board of directors of the company have assigned you the task of publishing the company’s employee manual on the intranet and making sure it is specifically oriented toward the needs and requirements of the expatriate and host country staff and their families. The company’s expatriates include executives and staff on foreign posting for periods ranging from six weeks to more than three years. Some executives may have families, and others may be single. Assume that the overseas staff is new to international operations and living conditions and unfamiliar with the issues that they may face while working in their new roles. You want to design the intranet project in such a way that employees in the company’s offices around the world and in the executive and support departments in the host country offices feel that they are part of the company.
Select a country in which your company plans to enter and begin staffing. Then, prepare a PowerPoint presentation, along with a 1- to 2-page executive summary (in APA style), seeking the approval of the company’s board of directors—the primary audience of your presentation.
