Complete activities A, C, E, and G, and answer the following questions:
(Activity A) Based on the information you have at the end of Part 1,
what do you think the key priorities should be? (use your own words – do not copy and paste from the text)
(Activity C) Write a recruitment advertisement for the new positions which can be sent to existing managers by e-mail. Your advertisement should include, at a minimum, the following information:
Main responsibilities of the new job.
The skills you are looking for in the position.
(Activity E) You are a management consultant who must design a selection process for the candidates. There is no budget limit for the development of the process; the senior management team knows that it is important to get the right person for the job. However, because the new hotels must be up and running quickly, they ask you to design a selection process which will take a maximum of two days. You must present your ideas and be able to justify why your method is appropriate.
(Activity G) The management team asks you to conduct Internet-based research to find out what expatriate support services are available in France. You should create a list of the services that are available and provide details of at least one organization which could provide the services. These services should then be listed in order of priority for the expatriates. You will present your ideas, so you should be prepared to justify your reasons for prioritizing the services.
