CULTURE AND HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

Assignment Overview

Case Assignment Instructions

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. (2011). Human resource management

practices in Nigeria. Journal of Management and Strategy, 2(2), 57. [Proquest]

Now suppose that Arik Airlines has been purchased by an American company, which now has to develop

a plan to address the issue of hiring and maintaining a well qualified pilot staff and making all of Arik’s

employees feel welcome under the new American parent company. Also, suppose that you have been

tasked with coming up with a solid human resource plan for the new American owners of Arik Air. You

need to make major decisions such as how much to rely on local staff, how much to rely on employees

from the U.S. or other countries, and how to deal with the sensitive issue of how an American company

manages local employees who may be resentful of their new owner. In order to do this, you will need to

use what you’ve learned in the background materials in this module as well as what you’ve learned in the

previous modules about assessing the local environment of a country.

In a 4- to 5-page paper, present a strategic human resource plan considering the following issues:

Go to Hofstede’s webpage http://geert-hofstede.com/countries.html and look up the cultural values for

both Nigeria and the U.S. Look up the scores of individualism, power distance, and uncertainty

avoidance. What major differences do you see between the two cultures? What kind of implications will

this have for how the American airline company manages their Nigerian employees?

Overall what kind of human resource strategy do you think the American company should take to manage

Arik Airlines? A geocentric approach, polycentric, or ethnocentric approach? Explain your reasoning, and

cite Steers and Nardon (2005) or Rao (2010) as part of your answer.

What kind of mix between Nigerian employees (host-country nationals), American employees (home

country nationals), or third country nationals do you think should be hired? What challenges do you see

for hiring each type of employee? Explain your reasoning, and cite Steers and Nardon (2005) or Rao

(2010) as part of your answer.

Remember that your paper should reflect an integration of both what you learned in the background

materials about the key general aspects of international human resource management, and what you’ve

specifically learned about the unique issues involved in managing human resources in an airline in

Nigeria. Your task it to apply the background materials to the specific issues that would be faced by an

American company if they were to purchase Arik Air.

Module 1 – SLP

CULTURE AND HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

SLP Assignment Instructions

For the Session Long Project for this class, first choose a country interests you other than the United

States (you need to learn about another culture other than your home culture for this assignment). You

can pick any country you want other than the United States among those included on Hofstede’s

webpage:

http://geert-hofstede.com/countries.html

You will be looking at a different aspect of doing business in this country in each of your Module 1-4

SLPs. For this first SLP, you will be focusing on the culture of this country and how it differs with the

culture of the U.S. You can start by looking at the cultural values of this country as shown on the Hofstede

webpage linked above.

Keep in mind that it is controversial to try to quantify national culture, so don’t rely only on Hofstede for

this paper. Do some additional research and try to find additional information about the cultural aspects of

doing business in your country. Then write a 2- to 3-page paper addressing the following issues:

Go to the Hofstede webpage and look up the values of individualism, power distance, masculinity, and

uncertainty avoidance for both your chosen country and for the United States. What are the main

differences between national culture in the U.S. and your chosen country? What implications might these

differences have on doing business in your country?

what other information besides hofstede have

What other information besides Hofstede have you been able to find about culture in your country? How

do these aspects of culture impact doing business in your country?

Overall, does the national culture of your country make it easy or difficult to business? What cultural

pitfalls might an American company investing in your country face?
