  1. I. As companies reach across country borders and globalization of the workplace becomes the new norm, businesses must continually adapt to changes. Professionals must learn to communicate differently, while business processes are continually adjusted to accommodate the growing number of different cultures and nationalities that organizations work with. Companies who are evolving with this shift have a competitive advantage over those who don’t, and there are many trends we are beginning to see in globalized workplaces.

    II. Hero, because I can work with all those 9 attitudes. I dont need to be a hero . I can make a lot of contributions without these ways being a “Hero”. Because for me, if you have a good asset and you can give contributions without putting these ways maybe.

    3. Good communicator because these ways may very useful like what Rizal did. As you can see its easy to spread all over the country his work with the use of being a good communicator. You can easily interact with people inside or even outside of the country and it may have a deep impact on the way companies manage their employees.

    4.The effect of globalization on HR management is a push for professional development. Professional development is concerned with providing employees opportunities to achieve their career-related goals. Some organizations provide resources for their employees to earn a university degree, others send their employees to conferences or networking events and training days. Professional development is important to globalization because it creates a win-win situation. The employees feel as though the organization is concerned with providing a range of skills and competencies for their employees. Likewise, the organization benefits from the added skills and connections that the employees who take advantage of professional development programs acquire.

  2. 1. Because just like the globalization, corporate culture was developing by international influence and also they start operating on an international scale.
    2. ‎For me humility, in a corporate world you must do everything in order to make a certain task great… if you can’t do a certain job, then still do your very best. Challenge yourself.
    3. ‎Every workers, must be passionate to their job.. it will lead them to success
    4. ‎As a future HR practioner we must be willing to experience different changes, because this changes can help us to improve our working skills.

  3. 1. Small business owners are learning that they have to adopt new policies and new guidelines to keep up with these changes. As globalization becomes more prevalent, companies deal with increased cultural diversity within the workforce. 

    2. I choose being committed because we have to be real, not everyone in the work place is truly committed to what they’re doing. They could be working just for the benefit of it and just for their personal gain and not for the company that they are working in.

    3. Being a good communicator is very vital to being globalized in order to form good and effective relationship and connection amongst other countries or companies.

    4. Human Resources is the department which leads the development and upgrade of the corporate culture. As an HR practitioner we have to set up an international team, which develops the unified corporate culture and corporate values. We have to understand roots of the common corporate culture and how they are expected to behave globally.

    1. Would Rizal be flattered with him being your role model? Why/why not?

    I, personally dont consider Rizal as my role model.
    But yes, he should be flattered when someone idolizes him because being an inspiration to other people means that they are very well appreciated. Perhaps Rizal’s hardship and sacrifices signify a lot to other people and can somehow bring a huge impact to their lives. That is why Rizal, considering that studying his life and works as a mandatory subject to all, should really be flattered and he must really feel good about it knowing that we, students are really trying so hard to still know him and appreciate him no matter how redundant it may come to us.

    2. As future business men and women, how would you emulate Rizal in the workplace?

    Rizal is very known to be a man of integrity and dignity. Integrity meaning a quality of being honest and fair. Dignity means a quality of being worthy of honor and respect. As soon to be business people, these two traits should really be keep in our minds. Business industry in some point can really be toxic. But keeping in mind these two traits can help us in deciding what is right from wrong.

    1. Would Rizal be flattered with him being your role model? Why/ Why not?
    Yes Rizal would be flattered with him being our Role model, because for me being the role model of someone else or idolizes by someone makes Rizal felt that other people appreciate the things that he have done for us. And for me, by showing his love for our country using his own novels, letters and poems as well as his goodness and contributions is a good enough reason for him to be the role model of each and everyone of us.

    2. As future business men and women, how would you emulate Rizal in the workplace?
    By being committed and passionate. Committed in a way of doing the best as you can, loving of what you are doing and last is you will do everything for your business become successful. And passionate by doing your business with excitement , interest and eagerness for the business become successful.
