Arik Air is one Nigeria’s largest airline and one of the largest airlines in all of Africa. Their employment situation is a bit unique in that close to 10 percent of their employees are expatriates. Recruiting and retaining expatriates to work as pilots or other positions in Nigeria can require higher salaries than are typically paid to local workers. However, disparities in wages between expatriates and local employees can lead to resentment. Overall, the human resource situation for a company that operates globally and hires globally such as Arik Air can be quite complicated. Do some research on Arik Air and the human resource situation in Nigeria. Below are a few articles to get you started: Arik Air customer base soars (Jan. 31, 2014). AllAfrica.com. Washington, DC. [Proquest] Nigeria loses N500 billion annually to expatriate pilots. (Jan. 24, 2014). AllAfrica.com . Washington, DC. [Proquest] Fajana, S., Owoyemi, O., Elegbede, T., & Gbajumo-Sheriff, M.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
