The use of technology has made the world a global society through the integrated networks which help disseminate information across the globe.The internet give us an opportunity to avail tones of information to a global market about our products and service through emails and websites.
Reducing Expatriate Turnover(cont’d)In order to reach out to the global market platforms, like social media, website, mobile applications, emails as well as Wikis can be used. Selection and orientation is portrayed as a result of consideration of personal traits, characteristics, skills, and interests of the expatriate.
Recruiting StrategiesSaudi ArabiaOne of the countries that is well endowed with natural resources is Saudi Arabia. Crude oil which is its main revenue generator has driven the country to be an economic hegemon hat supported major international businesses such as the hotel industry as well as he mining and refining industry.The country, which is an Islamic state, strictly observes the Sharia laws. As a result, interaction with the outside world is slightly restricted and this doubles up in many of the human resource management departments in major companies of the country.
Factors to ConsiderLabor laws – Saudi Arabia is an Islamic nation and as a result there are strict observance of Labor laws (Mellahi, 2007).Government policies – the Saudi government uses three prolonged strategies for recruitment. The government also uses the Nitaqat which is a tiered quota system that punishes companies for the failure to adhere to Saudization quotas with progressive immigration restrictions (Madhi & Barrientos, 2013). Demand- the demand for skilled labor in the countries has been on the rise over the past decade and far exceeds the supply of its national talent. This is considerable factor, because of a rise demand for skilled manpower to operate a myriad of its lucrative and expensive hospitality industry. As a result, the government is under pressure to recruit from Saudi nationals and the demand for expatriates in low.
