Conclusion

(Benciveng?? 1995) The discussi?n ?n culture ??ints ?ut th?t v?lues ?nd n?rms ?f the ?si?n culture tend t? be different fr?m Western ethics. ?n HR m?n?ger h?s t? c?nsider the dissimil?rity ?nd ?d??t t? l?c?l cust?ms. Distinguishing the w?y ?e??le w?rk in J???n f?r ex?m?le it is m?re ?f ? c?llectivist culture ?nd they ?erf?rm better in ? gr?u? r?ther th?n individu?lly. The em?l?yment legisl?tive system ?f the ?RC f?r ex?m?le h?s sets ?f rules which the HR direct?r h?s t? g?in ???r??ri?te kn?wledge in ?rder t? ?r?tect the c?m??ny fr?m ? l?w suit in fr?nt ?f the ?e??les C?urt. Fr?m the em?l?yment l?w the ess?y then f?cuses ?n the Industri?l Rel?ti?ns system. The HR m?n?ger needs t? ev?lu?te the rel?ti?nshi? between em?l?yer ?nd w?rker within the h?st c?untry. F?r ex?m?le the Big Dr?g?n ec?n?my's ?ld system f?cused ?n ?ers?n rel?ted ??y (?ge-linked ??y) r?ther th?n ?n ? ?erf?rm?nce ??y regime. H?wever since 1987 the new system w?s intr?duced which currently f?cuses ?n ???r?is?l meth?ds ?nd m?n?gement by ?bjectives. The fin?l secti?n ?f the ???er f?cuses ?n tr?ining ?nd devel??ment in Chin?. It is essenti?l t? tr?in the w?rkf?rce in ?rder ?f ?v?iding sur?rise such ?s the m?n?ger ?f ? le?ther c?m??ny h?s ex?erienced. Since the w?rkf?rce is n?t eng?ged in d?ing m?re th?n the b?sic j?b requirements.

(Benciveng?? 1995) It is im?er?tive t? dr?w ?ttenti?n t? effectively m?n?ge intern?ti?n?l st?ff? since c?untries differ fr?m ?n?ther; the s?ying "when in R?me d? ?s the R?m?ns d?" is the best w?y ?f de?ling with multi-cultur?l envir?nments.
