This paper will give you the opportunity to understand how emerging countries are managing human capital in the tightening global labor market. According to a 2008 McKinsey Global Institute study, countries outside of the United States are presenting an opportunity for highly qualified, cost-effective alternatives to US-educated/based professional talent. For instance, Morocco is now home to offshore centers for French and Spanish companies requiring fluent speakers of their home languages. Neighboring Tunisia has used its modern infrastructure, business-friendly regulations, and stable, low-cost workforce to attract companies such as Siemens. Vietnam offers university graduates who have strong mathematics skills; speak French, English, German, or Russian; and do not demand high wages. In choosing a location, companies will have to focus less on low wages and much more on other ways that candidate cities can fulfill their business needs. They will also have to be much more rigorous in articulating precisely what they require from an offshore location.   

This paper will allow you to explore answers to the following questions: Should we move white-collar jobs to offshore environments? With pressures on CEOs and business leaders of all ranks to increase shareholder value by reducing costs, one of the options in consideration is the opportunity to move white-collar professional positions to Outside US.  You must have at least three references (total) to the Hill text, the Ascent of Money videos, your relevant website material, Wall Street Journal, etc. citing using APA.   

This paper is designed for you to compare and contrast the pros and cons of moving white-collar jobs offshore. By comparing the two points of view, you will be able to better understand how a company chooses (knowingly or unknowingly) to adopt a particular position and how this decision will affect the economy of the US and the company that receives the job influx.

Your paper will consider the following questions: 

  • What benefits result from the outsourcing of skilled white collar jobs to developing nations? 
  • Who are the losers?  
  • Will developed nations like the US suffer from the loss of skilled and high paying jobs to developing nations?  Is there a difference between the transference of high-paying white collar jobs, such as computer programming and accounting to developing nations and low-paying bluecollar jobs? 
  • If so, what is the difference, and should government do anything to stop the flow of white-collar jobs out of the country?  
  • Be sure to include your country of choice as one comparison to the US.

Once again, you will find very helpful information on any company that you choose on their Websites and by researching recent press releases. Remember you cannot use Wikipedia as a source.Be sure you have an introduction, an analysis and a conclusion. The following describes how this paper will be graded.
