Seminar paper from the year 2019 in the subject Leadership and Human Resource Management - Generation Y, Generation Z, grade: 1.3, University of Tubingen (Wirtschaftswissenschaften), course: Master Seminar Int. Business, language: English, abstract: This seminar paper aims to answer the question of how Millennial employees will impact multinational corporations and which challenges and opportunities arise from integrating this generation into workforce. In order to do so, this paper examines current literature on Generation Y and generational differences in work values. It then points out current issues in Human Resource Management in multinational corporations. Combining these two topics helps to examine how Generation Y is observed from a scholarly as well as practically point of view. The discussion part shows that generational differences as well as work values and attitudes of Generation Y employees differ from previous generations and that multinational corporations have to establish strategies in order to attract and retain Millennial employees. Main challenges arise from miscommunication and the level of technology-adeptness between generations. Opportunities from employing Millennials include their openness towards diversity and their willingness to work in global work environments. Future research suggestions are given for scholars as well as practitioners.
Seminar paper from the year 2018 in the subject Asian studies, grade: 1,7, University of Duisburg-Essen, language: English, abstract: This term paper relates to the legal development of the Technical Intern Training Program (gaikokujin gin jisshu seido, hereinafter "TITP") and its forerunner programs from roughly 1989 to 2009. In order to seek answers for the research question, the applicability of the Advocacy Coalition Framework (ACF) will be tested.Alongside shrinking population and workforce numbers and an ageing society, Japan experiences major transformation processes. Having only about 1.8 percent of foreign residents yet, the number of participants in the TITP is steadily on the rise.The second chapter "The Advocacy Coalition Framework" deals with the policy process theory called ACF, which was developed in the late 1980s.Chapter three "Historical Evolution of the Technical Intern Program" reconstructs the position of major involved stakeholder and examines legal changes to the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act (Shutsunyukoku kanri oyobi nanmin nintei h , hereinafter "Immigration Act") in four separated periods from the description of distant TITP predecessors prior to 1989 to the last reform of the Immigration Act in 2009.In chapter four "Applying the Advocacy Coalition Framework to the evolution of the JapaneseTechnical Intern Training Program" both prior chapter issues are brought together for an indepthanalysis of the Japanese immigration subsystem using the ACF.

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject Leadership and Human Resource Management - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,3, University of Cologne, language: English, abstract: Demographic change, the "war for talent", global competition - key words that companies should seriously deal with. Whether in trade magazines, regional newspapers, Internet articles and television news - in all media the issues of demographic change and shortage of skilled labor are omnipresent. The population in Europe is growing older due to the high living standards, while the birth rate is alarming low1. The population of working age will be strongly influenced by the older workers and decline in the longterm period from 2015 on2. Due to quantitative and qualitative imbalances in the labor market in many industries qualified young professionals are missing, while the in-house workforce is getting older continuously.Demographic change and the resulting consequences for companies are often underestimated or ignored. Companies should have taken precautions much earlier.Strong action is required now. But how can companies overcome the "demographic gap"?The aim of this paper is to analyze demographic changes and their impacts on the labor markets. The paper will begin with brief r e view of Europe's demographic development and its driving forces followed by an overview of different proposed countermeasures to prevent the consequences of demographic change.[...]1 Euröpäisches Statistikamt (eurostat) online: Fewer, older and multicultural?

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: A, New York University, course: Independent Study, language: English, abstract: This paper explores previous researches on Leadership, and its relationship to multiculturalism. They give different aspects and point of views of the correlation between the two concepts. Multiculturalism is a trending notion in the business world. Countries like Canada are building their economy on the variety of culture they have. With Multicultural Policies, Canada has become a major player on the international trade and an example for other growing countries. The innovation behind Multiculturalism offers opportunities that companies are now trying to get a hand on.Management has its limits, consequently, researchers and campanies have grown very involved in leadership theories. Professionals have to come up with solutions to help the workforce to be more motivated, more efficient and get more work done. Leadership experts have found theories and practices that have shown success previously. They used various personal traits, sets of skills, work situations and follower insights to create appropriate leadership practices.
Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject Sociology - Social System, Social Structure, Class, Social Stratification, grade: 1,0, University of applied sciences, Düsseldorf, language: English, abstract: The objective in this paper is the depiction of the work-life balance concept as a strategy of employer branding in order to finally improve intrinsic and extrinsic motivation as a result thereof. Focussing on the practical example of the Adidas Group and its workplace in Herzogenaurach - which is known as "The Adidas Campus" - the emphasis lies on the evaluation how the expectations of the "Generation Z" are met and what consequences are revealed.The society nowadays undergoes manifold social alterations such as demographic change, globalisation or change of generations. The dynamics of these developments do not relate only to the people but also to the companies who have to acceptthese challenges. The necessity to act upon the requirement of social and economic adaption lead to the formula of success. For instance, attracting young professionals by creating targeted employment conditions constitutes simultaneously the solution for lack of specialists and the aging workforce in an organisation. According to a recent online survey conducted in Germany by the online statistics portal "Statista", 81% of young professionals between 25 and 34 years consciously care about work-life balance. Focussing on the needs of junior employees, who also go by the term of "Generation Z" for people born beginning from 1995, represents the current strategic orientation of companies. The "Generation Z" or "Digital Natives" are to be distinguished from their predecessors in terms of expectations towards employer. In comparison to the "Babyboomers" or "Generation X", the present generation is surrounded by the omnipresence of Internet and thus social media. Respecting this fact by providing a complying digital work environment, can influnce employer branding and employee motivation in a positive way.
