Introduction o Introduce the reader to your country (e.g., size, population, primary products/exports, language, geography, climate). Give the reader a “feel” for what the country is like. o Include a brief overview of the paper. Cultural Values o Discuss several (i.e., 2-3) of the nation’s cultural values or dimensions (e.g. individualism/collectivism, power distance, etc.), and explain how they might impact an American working in this country. o Highlight especially those that are different from the U.S., and explain what these differences mean. Business Etiquette o Identify and explain business-related norms and behaviors, as they may relate to local customs, traditions, and business practices. o Provide information that would be helpful for someone conducting business in this country, such as traditions regarding business cards, interpersonal interactive behaviors, gift-giving, negotiation styles, etc. o Verbal and nonverbal communication should also be included in this section (e.g., greetings, communication norms). HR Practices o Compare how this nation’s typical HR practices are different from and similar to those in the U.S., which may include: recruitment, selection, compensation, benefits, legal issues, training, development, labor relations, promotions, terminations, or performance management. o You do not have to include all, but should include approximately 2-3 that are particularly relevant or interesting for your country. (for example, in some countries, it’s acceptable to require a picture on a résumé… this is certainly different than in the U.S.!). Diversity o Address whether or not the nation (and its workplaces) more homogenous, or heterogeneous/diverse o Second, pick one protected class issue (e.g., age, gender, sexual orientation, immigration, or social class). Discuss this diversity issue within this country, and provide suggestions and practical advice for how managers should handle it. For example, if the company’s policy is to hire the best people for the job, including women, yet women are not accepted in this country’s business environment, how should this issue be addressed? You can also inform the class about the legal environment (e.g. are there laws protecting minorities or women?), where appropriate. Marginalized Group o Focus on one marginalized religious, racial, ethnic, or political group in the country and explain: The specific challenges this group faces, focusing on employment disparities A brief historical overview of how this group came to be marginalized o Note, this should not overlap substantially with the diversity issue discussed in the previous section.

    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.
