[Unlocked] Theoretical Foundations Behind International

[Unlocked] Theoretical Foundations Behind International

 

This week we learned that:

a. Expatriate adjustment to the cross-cultural environment can be viewed as having three primary dimensions: degree, mode, and facet.

b. The process of adaptation can be explained using the theory of the U-curve and social learning theory.

c. The factors that influence expatriate adjustment have four aspects: individual factors, job-related factors, organizational factors, and non-work factors.

YOUR TASK:

The management team at Holiday Villas is interested in  understanding a bit more about the theoretical foundations behind  international HR. 

Choose ONE of the three theories and explain it clearly and  in detail, IN YOUR OWN WORDS. Make sure to reference the book chapter  with page numbers as needed. Do NOT use outside sources, except for the  optional additional reading provided in the class.
