International Human Resource Management | APPLE’S HRM PRACTICES IN CHINA


The total word count should inudes the executive summary.  However, our total word count is 2200 words which includes the executive summary.




This study looks into two major areas. First, it discusses the impact of political, economic, cultural/social, environment, technology, and legal factors into operations of Apple’s store in China. The report finds that Apple stores are likely to be affected in different ways by these factors. Second, the report looks into the culture differences between the United States and China and the implication of these differences on international human resource management. Using the Gofstede’s cultural dimension framework, the report finds that there are major cultural differences between the two countries which have major ramifications on IHRM. In light of these findings, the report recommends that the Apple should hire American born Chinese who can easily adapt to the Chinese culture or Indians who have a culture close to China.
