STEP ONE: On page 452 of your textbook complete the Internet exercise: Motivating Potential Employees.
“In order for multinationals to continue expanding their operations, they must be able to attract and retain highly qualified personnel in many countries. Much of their success in doing this will be tied to the motivational package they offer, including financial opportunities, benefits and perquisites, meaningful work, and an environment that promotes productivity and worker creativity. Automotive firms, in particular, are a good example of MNCs that are trying very hard to increase their worldwide market share. So, for them, employee motivation is an area that is getting a lot of attention. Go to the web and look at the career opportunities that are currently being offered by Nestlé, Unilever, and Procter & Gamble (websites: https://www.nestle.com, https://www.unilever.com, https://us.pg.com). All three of these companies provide information about the career opportunities they offer.
Based on this information, answer these questions: (1) What are some of the things that all three firms offer to motivate new employees? (2) Which of the three has the best motivational package? Why? (3) Are there any major differences between P&G and European-based rivals? What conclusion can you draw from this?”
Step 2: Answer the following question: What cultures would be the most likely to perceive differences between managerial and leadership duties? What cultures would view them as the same? Use evidence to support your answer.
Using the results from Step 1 above, write a synopsis of what you learned from the exercise. Provide the methodology that your organization uses or should use to motivate employees.
Using the results from Step 2 above, write a synopsis on what you learned from the exercise and provide detailed information to explain how your organization might avoid any mis-perceptions between leadership and management in the culture you are studying.
Write a minimum 2-page paper using your findings from above.
