Major human relations issues with multinational corporations


Human resources experts report that the following are the major human relations issues with multinational corporations:

  1. The growing role of women has been through technological change and globalization. Worldwide, 59% of all businesses in the world include women in senior management positions, although women fill less than 19% of all senior management positions. Worldwide, more and more women are starting their own businesses.
  2. Immigrant labor, often unskilled laborers, within and particularly between nations has become an increasingly salient issue in terms of HR macro policy.
  3. Child labor is a major issue in many parts of the world. At least 1 out of every 6 children between the ages of 5 and 17 work in streets, mines, rock quarries, or as maids in homes.
  4. Forced labor, which is most common in South and East Asia, northern and western Africa, and parts of Latin American, may affect as many as 27 million people today.
  5. Attainment of skilled labor is difficult in many nations. Many rural workers are urbanizing and must be taught not only job skills but also the concept of time.
  6. Training. The training of employees and managers varies somewhat, depending on whether the candidate is from the home country, host country, or a third country.
  7. Expatriates. An expatriate is a person living outside his/her home country. There are many issues with expats such as family displacement, children, two-family careers, etc.
  8. Compensation. Exchange rates and inflation must be taken into account.
  9. Risk Management. Protection of the employees and assets of the firm.
