This report examines the internal dynamics of Dell's Human Resource and staffing policies and their effect on the success of the company. The paper explores Dell's strategies regarding international outsourcing, and specifically focuses on the factors leading to Dell's unsteady foothold in China. It finds that though Dell's willingness to embrace change has benefited the company, the company's inability to cope with economic change has hurt its sales in China and contributed to the company's unstable position in that country. To improve it's foothold in China, Dell must be more selective in employee hiring and focus on choosing personnel who can anticipate economic change.
From the Paper:"Economics plays a large role in the external environment of Dell's market, particularly the PC market, in both the US and China. Therefore it is the plan of the current report to look at Dell economically at least in part by looking at the internal economics of the company's staffing and HR policies, as reflected outwards through outsourcing to countries like India and China. However, there are also problems in China, because Dell has spoken out about the country's censorship practices. Because Dell is a large and complicated company, it hires many professionals to fill a large number of positions worldwide. Most of the professional positions within the company require a specialized college degree, and the company is also active, like Microsoft and many other large technology companies, internationally as well as in the US. Because Dell is a large and popular high-profile company, it can afford to be very selective in determining an effective level of education, skill, and experience, in both domestic and offshore operations, and this is also an opportunity for the company economically that must be considered."
