analyse how an organisation with a presence in more than one country can balance the need for uniformity and consistency in its HR policies and practices with the ability to adapt to local needs.
consider the following questions:
What forces within an organisation drive for uniformity? What forces within or outside of an organisation necessitate differentiation and adaptability?
Which HR policies are likely to be similar across different countries or regions, and which are likely to be different?
Which HR policies might require uniformity, and which can be more easily adapted, or made flexible?
What examples from your own organisation or another would demonstrate either the HR policy challenges in global organisations or HR solutions to these challenges?
