Option #1: Workforce Planning and Environmental Factors
A company you work for is looking to expand globally, and needs to reevaluate their workforce plan, so that they can be successful in their expansion. The organization is a large automobile manufacturer that employs about 2000 workers in the US. The company specializes in manufacturing electric powered automobiles. The company would like to open 3 new manufacturing facilities in India, China, and Russia due to the increased demand of electric automobiles in these emerging markets. Each location will need to hire at least 250 new workers for a total of 750 new employees. The organization would like to accomplish this in the next 2 to 5 years.
As the Director of HR, you have been put in charge of putting together a strategic workforce plan that will aid the organization in their globalized expansion.
Choose an environmental scanning tool, such as the PESTLE, SWOT, or Scenario analysis. Then create a report that discusses both the internal and external factors that will directly influence your organization’s workforce plan.
Also, in this report discuss how your company will progress in meetings its global expansion in light of these internal or external environmental factors. For example, what solutions will the organization adopt if the external political environment keeps it from hiring the staff needed? Or, what will the organization do if there is not enough highly skilled labor to meet organizational demands.
