Cross-cultural Adaptation of International Human Resources in New Zealand.

Research Outline

In developing countries the human factor is often underestimated, which is expressed in low level of salaries of highly qualified specialists (especially in the educational, scientific and public health sectors), breach of the principle of intergenerational continuity in industrial enterprises, educational and scientific and research institutions, and accordingly, breach of the principle of professional knowledge and skills continuity.

These are the main reasons why some people choose to live and work abroad. Often such mobility of human resources is self-initiated one. In most cases this mobility influences the career choice, because newly arrived human resources have to adapt to the existing conditions in respect of the jobs (vacancies) available in the country.

In connection with the aforesaid comprehensive analysis of international careers and international mobility is needed, including knowledge, motivation, professional skills, improvement of educational level and social expectations of employees. Research of the influence on efficiency, quality of labor and competitiveness of international human resources is an important and timely task.
