You are the total rewards director for a large domestic manufacturing company. The CEO has announced that they will be opening a new foreign production plant next year in Mexico. This new plant needs to be up and running by the deadline set by the CEO. In order to meet that deadline the company must send ten U. S. based employees, including some upper- level managers, to Mexico to get the new plant functional.
The CEO has come to you and asked for you to design a comprehensive and effective international compensation package to encourage the employees selected to take the assignment. Draft a memo to the CEO explaining the new international compensation program. In your memo you will need to describe the exact level of pay and benefits you want to commit to the program. For the purposes of this exercise you can assume that all 10 expatriate positions are equal and the domestic equivalent salary is $80,000. Make sure you indicate which base pay calculation you have chosen and what benefits should be offered. Be as specific as possible and provide references to support your answer.
Your answer should be two full pages (double spaced) in length and make sure you apply APA format to your assignment.
