Human Resources is now asked to be ready with a Global HR Acquisition Plan so the company can move quickly once government approval is secured for acquiring companies in India. The goals are to retain talent and build capacity to handle the new business potential. HR must develop a Global HR Acquisition Plan that supports this international expansion to India into its own structured plan.
The final assignment is a culmination of the previous weeksâ€™ assignments, in which you will use all of the skills you have acquired throughout this course. Now you will pull those assignments together to create a Global HR Acquisition Plan. Review the feedback you received in previous weeks from your instructor before completing the final assignment. In addition, you will provide an Executive Summary, as well as evaluate organizational culture and regulatory, legal, and ethical issues.
The Global HR Acquisition Plan will be a summative accumulation of each of the weekly assignments that have had the instructorâ€™s feedback incorporated. The Global HR Policy will consist of the following sections:
The Executive Summary is a two- to three-page condensed version of the Global HR Acquisition Plan. It will contain a summary of the results, conclusions, and recommendations. Visit the Ashford Writing Centerâ€™s Business Writing (Links to an external site.) for an example of an Executive Summary.
In Week 1, you summarized the social and business elements of India and analyzed how ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, and disability impacted those elements. You then evaluated the competencies necessary to work and manage effectively in this environment.
Multi-Level Talent Management Plan
In Week 2, you evaluated multi-level approaches to talent management, explaining the competencies necessary to manage employees from home headquarters, employees from India, and third country nationals. You devised strategies to address recruitment, selection, succession planning, and retention, explaining how the shortage of talent and the availability of low-cost labor in India impacted these elements.

In Week 3, you evaluated the characteristics necessary to work effectively in a global market. Specifically, you analyzed how varying demographics impacted the management of employee capabilities from a global perspective, explained employee relations strategies that overcome biases, and analyzed the challenges related to direct and indirect communication channels.
Rewards and Benefits Management
In Week 4, you proposed a compensation structure. Specifically, you constructed a total rewards model that hedged diversity as a resource for organizational competitiveness and assessed whether a fixed benefits package or a flexible bundle would best fit these employees. In addition, you explained whether the compensation would consist of hourly, salary, or contingent base selection and compared your compensation structure to that of the competition.
