Question 1.  Consider Hofstede’s dimensions of national culture and answer the following questions. Describe three ways in which individualistic and collectivistic societies differ. Give three examples of strongly individualistic countries, and three examples of strongly collectivistic countries.

Question 2. Trends of the transfer of employment practices, and both convergence and divergence of HRM policies and practices are being noted by researchers across different countries. Answer the following related questions: Define the convergence thesis with reference to patterns of HRM practice use. Explain the factors that are said to be resulting in convergence in HRM practices globally. Refer to relevant readings as evidence to support your arguments. Explain the opposing factors that are said to be resulting in divergence or stasis in HRM practices globally. Refer to relevant readings as evidence to support your arguments.
