Societal and cultural differences in foreign countries can make opportunities to expatriate to those regions a difficult choice.
For this discussion, consider the following: You are a human resources manager for an international company and have offered a $200,000-per-year position to an employee. However, this new position is located Brazil.
Based on this information, answer the following questions:
- What additional benefits, beyond salary, would you offer to this employee? Why?
- Assume this individual has a family (trailing spouse and children): What benefits and accommodations might you consider to make this cultural transition as smooth as possible for the employee and his or her family to ensure the new employee begins working productively as soon as possible? Provide specific examples to justify your reasoning.
