human resource management in the global environment
You are the Australian based HR manager of a major multinational resources organisation that has its headquarters in London. You work from an office in Melbourne. The organisation has decided to transfer a South African-born manager (with extensive experience working in the minerals industry in that country) currently working from head office in London to manage a new mine located near Moranbah in Central Queensland. This manager will be living in Moranbah.
You are asked to write a report for your Chief Executive Officer in Melbourne on the employment relations and human resource management issues that will impact on the working life of this manager in Australia. Your report will be used to brief the new manager before he/she takes up the new management position .
