INTERNATIONAL TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT


Just as in any organization—global in scope or not—training and development are key factors for HR success. For the global firm these activities are just as important, but for incoming expatriates, host-country nationals, and third-country nationals, training and development is crucial. The training needs of a German expatriate assigned to the United States for the first time might be very different than the needs of an employee working for the company as a factory assembler in Mexico, but both need training to be effective. For example, when companies first began to put down roots in Mexico on the U.S./Mexican border, there was little incentive to train employees who were seen simply as a source of cheap labor.
But employee turnover rates ran over 20% a month in many places, and employers found that the gains in labor costs were offset with shoddy quality. Training quickly became an important part of turning the HR catastrophe around. Greatly improved productivity has resulted from programs of continuous training, skills improvement, vocational training, and employees training other employees.
Pre-Departure Orientation and Training
The orientation and training that expatriates and their families receive before departure have a major impact on the success of the overseas assignment. Three areas affect the cross-cultural adjustment process: (a) work adjustment, (b) interaction adjustment, and (c) general adjustment. Permeating all of those areas is the need for training in foreign language and culture familiarization. Many firms have formal training programs for expatriates and their families, and this training has been found to have a positive effect on cross-cultural adjustment.
Individuals selected to work outside the United States for MNEs need answers to many specific questions about their host countries. Such areas as political and historical forces, geographic and climatic conditions, and general living conditions are topics frequently covered in the orientation and training sessions on the culture of the host country. Expatriates and their families also must receive detailed, country-specific training on customs in the host country. Such knowledge will greatly ease their way in dealing with host-country counterparts. Training in such customs and practices also should be part of the training programs for individuals who will not live outside the home country but will travel to other countries for business purposes.
A related issue is the promotion and transfer of foreign citizens to positions in the United States. As more global organizations start or expand U.S. operations, more cross-cultural training will be necessary for international employees relocated to the United States. For example, many Japanese firms operating in the United States have training programs to prepare Japanese for the food, customs, and other practices of U.S. life. The acceptance of a foreign boss by U.S. workers is another concern. These issues point to the importance of training and development for international adjustment.
Once global employees arrive in the host country, they will need assistance in “settling in.” Arrangements should be made for someone to meet them and assist them. Obtaining housing, establishing bank accounts, obtaining driver’s licenses, arranging for admissions to schools for dependent children, and establishing a medical provider relationship are all basics when relocating to a new city, internationally or not. But differences in culture, language, and laws may complicate these activities in a foreign country. The sooner the expatriates and their families can establish a “normal” life, the better the adjustment will be, and the less likely that expatriate failure will occur.

  62. In database computing, Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) — an option for the Oracle Database software produced by Oracle Corporation and introduced in 2001 with Oracle9i — provides software for clustering and high availability in Oracle database environments. Oracle Corporation includes RAC with the Standard Edition, provided the nodes are clustered using Oracle Clusterware.
    Oracle RAC allows multiple computers to run Oracle RDBMS software simultaneously while accessing a single database, thus providing clustering.

    In a non-RAC Oracle database, a single instance accesses a single database. The database consists of a collection of data files, control files, and redo logs located on disk. The instance comprises the collection of Oracle-related memory and operating system processes that run on a computer system.
