Week 1 – Assignment
As more organizations operate in various countries throughout the world, human resource professionals are becoming involved with the expansion of global corporations. All of these expansions have to be planned for, managed, and executed. In addition, corporate goals and objectives must be balanced with local customs and labor laws. A Global HR Acquisition Plan, your final assignment in Week 6, is needed to streamline these processes.
MTE Corporation, a division of SL Industries, and a world leader in the design, manufacture, and distribution of high-efficiency electrical power quality solutions, has announced significant expansion plans for the Asia Pacific regions (MTE Corporation, July 2015). MTE Corp is based out of the United States. Their strategy is to identify and acquire formerly strong but now faltering domestic companies with solid brand value in their countries. If successful, MTE will become the largest foreign-owned entity in the Asia Pacific region in the electrical power solutions industry. The newly acquired units will be combined to form a new “third company.” Due diligence has been performed, and India has been selected for the acquisition.
