The Khoikhoin and San (the "Hottentots" and "Bushmen" of early European terminology), although collectively known as the Khoisan, are often thought of as distinct peoples.The former were those who, some 2 000 years ago, adopted a pastoralist lifestyle herding sheep and, later, cattle. Whereas the hunter-gatherers adapted to local environments and were scattered across the subcontinent, the herders sought......

...evidence from the organisation known as ‘British Petroleum’. The purpose of this assignment is to grasp a comprehensive understanding of the critical aspects of British Petroleum’s internationalization process, the implications it holds for the international business environment and achieving their internationalization objectives through contemporary context. Overview of organisation When discussing globalization it is critical to emphasis the importance a multinational corporation holds over the international business environment. A Multinational corporation (MNC) is an organisation that has registered facilities and assets in business endeavors in more than one country. MNC’s are highlighted for their success in incorporating products, ideas and cultures from more than one country in order to achieve a common goal. With reference to the definition of a MNC, British Petroleum (BP) is undoubtedly a MNC as it undergoes its business ventures throughout the entire world and in countries such as China, Australia, Canada and Mexico. A key aspect of MNC’s is to multi nationalize every aspect of your organisation when aiming to expand internationally, BP are successful in ensuring that every branch of BP around the world has the common sustainable goals. BP has a direct correlation in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). A FDI is when an organisation finances into production or business ventures in an external country to the one they are operating in.

...Multinational Companies in India  The multinational companies in India represent a diversified portfolio of companies from different countries. The list of multinational companies in India is long and growing. There are few main reasons why multinational companies are coming down to India. Large MNCs have looked and still look at this country as potential growth market. India has got a huge market and one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Besides, the policy of the government towards FDI has also played a major role in attracting the multinational companies in India. For quite a long time, India had a restrictive policy in terms of foreign direct investment. As a result, there was lesser number of companies that showed interest in investing in Indian market. However, the scenario changed during the financial liberalization of the country, especially after 1991. Government, nowadays, makes continuous efforts to attract foreign investments by relaxing many of its policies. As a result, a number of multinational companies have shown interest in Indian market. The country has got many MNCs operating here. Following are names of some of the most famous and successful multinational companies in India: Microsoft: A subsidiary, named as Microsoft Corporation India Private Limited, of the US based Microsoft Corporation, one of the software giants has got their headquarter in New Delhi.

Building on the definition of CSR as an activity that furthers some social good and goes above and beyond that required by law, we define an “Outstanding” CRA rating as evidence of CSR, because the rating indicates that the bank exceeded government requirements under the CRA Journal of International Business Studies Multinationals, CSR and distance Joanna Tochman Campbell et al. 93 Table 1 List of home countries represented in the study Country name Australia Brazil Canada China Columbia Denmark Dominican Republic Ecuador France Germany Greece Hong Kong India Ireland Israel Italy Japan Jordan Luxembourg Mexico Netherlands Pakistan Panama Philippines Puerto Rico South Korea Spain Switzerland Taiwan United Kingdom United Arab Emirates Venezuela Total Percentage of observations 0.5 0.4 20.7 1.0 0.7 0.2 1.4 0.9 1.6 2.1 2.4 0.2 4.5 4.2 7.1 0.5 15.6 0.4 0.7 0.5 4.9 0.4 0.5 3.3 1.0 6.9 5.7 1.0 2.4 6.1 0.7 1.6 100.0 government-mandated levels under the Act.

Vitaliano and Stella (2006) estimate that, even though there is no difference in cost efficiency between “Outstanding” and “Satisfactory” banks, receiving......

...1% in 2007. The Europe-based initiatives, on the other hand, have expanded (from 55.3% to 62.9%), as have the equity investments from Japan (from 0.5% to 4%) and from the rest of the world (from 1.1% to 2.9%). The distribution of foreign presences throughout the country is also of interest, again referring to the manufacturing sector. The regions of the northwest predominate: they host 56.9% of the companies (administrative offices) and 59% of the employees (attributed in block to the company and located at the administrative HQ). They are followed by the northeast, with 24.9% of the companies and 19% of the employees (because of the smaller average size of the investee companies). The regions of central Italy and those of the south and islands account for 11.6% and 6.6% of the companies and 14.6% and 7.4% of the employees, respectively. This distribution confirms the tendency of international businesses to make “conservative” choices based on a desire to reduce risks and limit information costs, by selecting sites in the major metropolitan areas and in zones with the best location factors. Advantages generated by multinationals Multinationals are characterized by higher productivity of labor (56% higher than the national average). This evidence is consistent with theory and studies conducted internationally regarding the superior services of subsidiaries of multinationals compared to domestic companies, thanks to the greater input of expertise, technology,......

...Sri Lankan Journal of Human Resource Management Sri Lankan Journal of Human Resource Management Vol.2, No.1 2008 Sharing the Pie: Trade Unionism and Industrial Relations in Multinationals in Bangladesh Monowar Hossain Mahmood East West University Bangladesh Abstract Using the ‘convergence-divergence’ thesis as the baseline for the study of industrial relations and trade union activities in multinational subsidiaries, the present study tried to investigate extent of the trade union activities and IR practices of MNCs in a developing country context, i.e. Bangladesh, as well as influence of the MNCs on trade unions and IR activities within the existing social and economic contexts. The study revealed that comparative power dominance of multinationals over the host country industrial relations actors emerge as the vital factor in employer-union bargaining process, as well as their capacity to manipulate the existing bargaining process also helped them to implement their desired practices in Bangladesh. However, multinationals were not in confronting mode at all the circumstances, but their potential lobbying power created difficulties for the employees and the trade unions to develop countervailing power in the collective bargaining process and IR activities.

Mncs in Mexico

...Marked socio-economic differences in Mexico are playing an important role in pushing the uptake of generics, and these issues are starting to affect multinational corporations (MNCs). MNCs are being forced to open up and diversify, quite simply to have their fingers in as many pies where they can compete successfully. Alternatively they are applying a more focused sales strategy to concentrate on niche markets. Alvarez Tostado of AstraZeneca believes that MNCs need to adjust their activities to become competitive in both the private and public sector. “Mexico provides a uniquely generous market structure where you have the institutional sector, the private out-of- pocket segment of the market, and then you have the new up-and-coming popular insurance systems that will cater to those who have very little access to medical care, if they have access at all. So in that regard, I think the industry has to realign itself to make sure that it is able to provide adequate services to the institutional sector; provide broadened access to the out-of-pocket consumer, and obviously realign to be competitive in the Seguro Popular concept.” Mexico is no exception to the global trend of companies moving towards branded generics, a successfully growing sector in a very much brand-driven Mexican society. Bertrand Baron, general director of Sanofi Mexico, is confident that Sanofi’s global strategy of diversification fits well with the current climate in Mexico. “I believe that Sanofi in......

Mnc and Fdi

...carried out by multinational corporations (MNCs) which have become household names. E.g Toyota, , Sony, Coca-Cola, McDonald's, Daimler-Benz .It is, however, difficult to pinpoint what constitutes an MNC, but some books define it as a firm carrying out some of its production activity abroad by establishing a presence in foreign countries via subsidiaries, affiliates and joint ventures. The relationship between multinationals and FDI is very simple: firms become multinational (or transnational) when they undertake FDI. Thus, FDI represents an internal organizational expansion by multinationals The link between FDI and MNCs is so close that the motivation for FDI may be used to distinguish between MNCs and other firms. Lall and Streeten (1977) distinguish among economic, organizational and motivational definitions of MNCs: * The economic definition places emphasis on size, geographical spread and the extent of foreign involvement of the firm. * The organizational definition emphasizes on centralization of decision-making, global strategy and the ability to act as one cohesive unit under changing circumstances. * The motivational definition places emphasis on corporate philosophy and motivations. For example, an MNC is characterized by a lack of nationalism, and by being concerned with the organization as a whole rather than with any constituent unit, country or operation. THE CHARACTERISTICS OF MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS 1. MNCs are predominant in certain......

Mncs the worst. People like the security of knowing what to expect. Financial and Technological Resources and Expertise: MNCs provide immense resources and investments, technology, innovation and expertise to the host societies. A culture of research and development is encouraged and human resources are developed, at least within the organization. MNCs also contribute significantly to the national exchequer by paying taxes. Good Business Practices: Good governance, organizational transparency, clear command structures, and performance-based evaluation and incentives programs for employees encourage the merit system. MNCs introduce a professional working environment and culture for local organizations to emulate, thereby promoting sound management and business education. Comforts of Life: In some cases, large-scale economies, quality control and a healthy competition lead to price cuts and other benefits for the end-user. People have more access to the comforts of life with a large variety of choices. Infrastructure Improvement: Many MNCs help in improving the infrastructure and provision of basic needs in their specific areas of operation. They either do so directly or provide funds for this purpose to civil society organizations. This also improves business conditions within and in the vicinity of the areas where they are operating. Pluralism: MNCs help boost cross-boundary interaction among people. Even education, particularly, business education, has taken on a......

The South

...American South is an interesting culture that has had an avid history in the United States’ past. A vast region, the South is rich with its own individuality that has shaped our history and continues to do so today. Growing up in the South has immersed me in a culture of values and hospitality, instituting morals in my life that have gotten me to where I am now. Each region has its own faults however, and while this region may have a bit of a misunderstood history, what it’s turning into can’t really be appreciated until new perspective is introduced to your surroundings. The South is responsible for ranges of genre in music that stretch far deeper than the 36’30 line. While New Orleans was brewing the most wild of jazz, a collective of states narrated their lives into the Country sound Southern twang. Eventually Soul entered the fray, pioneered by the finest and most innovative of musicians. It was this innovation, this drive that lead to the music of today, music mixed amongst the South that influences my generation as they move about in life. For me, music has inspired me and given me the motivation to keep on moving up the social hierarchy, while helping me identify the curveballs life often tosses my way. While not having the most impact on my musical taste, Wagon Wheel (by Old Crow Medicine Show) reintroduced me to the concept of modern branches of Country music, branches that still retain its roots that remain buried in the heart of the......

...MNC Structure Ken Shall MA405 Multinational Management Grantham University Professor : Angela Au 6/05/2012 A Multinational Company In business today, the boundaries of the world have seemed to almost disappear. More and more companies have a much broader reach and expanding globally is almost the norm. Many years ago, few companies were able to sell products to other parts of the world, let alone conduct business operations in other countries. Then we began to see some of the world’s largest companies begin to expand globally, not only in sales, but in operations, creating a physical presence in many foreign countries. In the early 1980’s, Honda opened up operations and began building cars in Ohio. This was a real twist, and probably a brilliant move, as it was when many Americans began to realize global expansion yet we wanted to keep jobs here and buy what was built in America. Today, with the help of the World Wide Web and Social Marketing, even a fairly small business can not only sell in other countries, but also have a physical presence there. An example of a US business expanding globally is Le Gourmet Gift Basket Inc. As early as 2004, it had 510 franchise locations including 25 outside the United States. (Le Gourmet Gift Basket Inc) Forming a Multinational Company There are two primary ways that a multinational organization is created - organically or inorganically.
