When you post your responses, you must use the resources from the class. Occasionally it may be helpful to search other resources, and some assignments may call for additional research, but in the Discussion area, I am really looking for evidence that you read the course material and can apply it. Please include the questions with your response.
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.
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.
Please post the original response by Saturday at 11:59 pm EST and respond to two students (total) by Tuesday at 11:59 pm EST.
