Asia continues to be a popular location for foreign multinational
companies to set up their regional offices. This is largely due to the
countries reputation for ease of doing business. It is also helped by its
good track record of low corruption, good governance, and highly
educated labour force. In fact, some Western companies, are even more
bullish and view Asia as a “talent hub” where they can groom local
talent.
As Asia continues to be a favourable destination for foreign companies
to set up their regional offices in order to expand their reach into the
Southeast Asian region, these companies are also bringing with them
their own corporate culture. Such corporate culture has been shaped by
the cultures of their home countries, and have influenced not only their
ways of doing work, but also their own management structure. These
features can either invigorate the regional office or it can also have a
way of dampening spirits of local employees in the regional office.

a) Discuss three main challenges that both local employees and
their foreign counterparts will face working together in the
regional office in Asia. You should interview 2 local employees
and 2 foreign employees on their perceptions of their workplace
culture. The respondents should come from the same workplace.
Your analysis should distinguish between the perceptions of local
and foreign employees you have interviewed, and identify any
nuanced cultural differences present. To adequately answer this
question, analyse your findings based on relevant concepts and
theories of cross-cultural theories, stereotypes and
discrimination that may stem from interpersonal interaction,
socialisation, and cultural context. (40 marks)
.
b) Develop and design an induction programme that would
establish clear milestones to promote a more conducive
environment for exemplary local employees to step into leadership
roles at the regional office depending on the context chosen in part
(a). Explain how your programme directly or indirectly
addresses the challenges you have identified in (a). Note that
you will need to take into account, perceptions, attitudes, and
behaviours towards local employees and vice versa. (30 marks)
c) In order for the induction programme in the regional office to be
successful, there must be buy-in from all parties concerned. Plan a
communication strategy for the induction programme that is
not only sensitive to differences but also effective in publicising
the programme, and will not put the organisation in a negative
light. You should identify the language, tone, keywords, and
phrases you will use in your response to this part of the ECA.
Apply the communication model and other relevant concepts
when elaborating on your communication strategy. (30 marks)
Notes
You must examine and analyse the specifics of this case study, and to
tailor your answers to address all possible issues that may arise from the
context of the case study.
You are to apply cross-cultural theories, concepts and models,
critically analyse the case study at hand, and propose practical
workplace programmes, policies and communication strategies that
directly address the specifics of the above case study. Your answer may
include, but not be limited to, dimensions of cultural variability, sociorelational and perceptual contexts of intercultural communication,
barriers to intercultural communication, and the communication model.
Good responses are a result of insightful research in the relevant areas as
prescribed in this assignment. A literature review covering relevant
articles both from academic journals and newspapers is necessary.
You are required to conduct interviews with suitable respondents
(primary data) for this assessment and utilise relevant resources
(e.g., company annual reports, websites, etc.) in either an Asian or
Western organisational context, to offer key insights that are
applicable. For example, you may want to interview colleagues and
friends who are able to provide you with their first-hand experiences
working in the regional offices of an Asian or Western multinational
corporation. Or you could also ask your informants about programmes at
their workplace that promote opportunities for local employees to take
on leadership positions in these foreign companies. You should select
carefully relevant information and data from your primary and
secondary sources, and succinctly synthesise and highlight key findings
from your research that directly address the parts outlined above.
When developing the induction programme to establish a more
conducive environment for local representation in the higher echelons of
your company, you will need to anticipate and identify possible
resistance at various levels of the hierarchy in the company.
Additionally, you will need to candidly examine possible shortcomings
that may occur from spearheading such initiatives, and articulate some
safeguards to ensure that the programme goes beyond paying lip service
to issues and encouraging tokenism. Hence you would want to consider
the key messages to the different segments of employees, as well as the
platforms for engaging the employees (e.g., briefing, seminars,
collaterals, social media, etc.).
You are expected to produce an original, well-structured essay that is
backed by evidence drawn from research data and underpinned by a
synthesis of relevant theories appropriate for the case study in question.
Where appropriate, you should highlight relevant findings and
observations obtained from your research and interviews.
Your response to this assessment are to be written in a format similar to
an academic essay, with proper citation of your sources and references.
You must also provide a bibliography of APA format with minimum
3 references at the end of the assessment. The allocation of marks for
each part of the question is a general guide to the relative importance of
each part.
