Abstract

This Microsoft PowerPoint presentation is to accompany the case ''9A99C001''. The abstract of the case is as follows: The regional human resources (HR) manager of a multinational conglomerate that operates in over 100 countries had to make decisions regarding the evacuation of its senior management from a politically unstable country. In particular, the firm''s expatriate and ethnic Chinese managers and their families faced considerable risk. The HR manager is charged with executing corporate policies and plans. Some of the challenges to consider relate to the development and initial execution of the evacuation plan. These challenges are heightened by a decentralized decision-making process entrenched in the firm''s structure and culture, as well inconsistent information from numerous sources in the field operations. Moreover, the issue of which employees to evacuate poses a moral dilemma for the decision-maker. Specifically, he must decide what criteria - rank, ethnicity, tenure - should dictate whether an employee and/or his or her family is offered assistance, and of what sort.
